Customer Success with Seed Slide

The best feeling an entrepreneur can ever achieve is hearing positive product feedback from happy customers. We are proud to share the testimonials of two farmers who have loved having our remote seed box opener pulling its weight on their operations this spring: 

"The Seed Slide is GREAT! It saves me from inhaling all of the treatment chemicals, something that put me in the hospital last year. Plus, it eliminates the risk of slipping off the tender ladder; without it, it's one wrong move and nothing stopping you from a long fall!" Arden Greiner, Corn and Soybean farmer in Zearing, IA

"I wish I bought this 5 years ago, it is worth every penny! It is so convenient to open it remotely from the forklift and not have to climb up ladder after ladder. I also really like how it uses the same battery and charger system as my drills." Kenton Woster, Corn and Soybean farmer in Hardin, Story, and Marshall Counties

The Hustle Spotlight

It is always fun to hear what other people are saying about your product. A big "thank you" to The Hustle for featuring Seed Slide with the following excerpt:

"Farmers need seeds to grow crops. They store these seeds in giant seed boxes. But traditionally, to spread these seeds around their fields, they have to climb on top of wagons and open the boxes by hand from precarious, and potentially life-endangering positions. Seed Slide opens these seed boxes remotely, saving time and lives. Seed Slide can save farmers from needless deaths and injuries -- and I think that’s a cause worth championing."

Seed Slide "treats" farmers with the ability to open seed boxes remotely, eliminating the need to climb up wagons and risk an accident like the one shown.

Farming Accident

Farm Safety Fears: Harvest Edition

As one of the most dangerous professions based on federal and state statistics from the US Department of labor, this time of year brings additional concerns with the changing of the leaves for farmers across the Midwest.  475 fatalities occurred in farm-related work injuries in the U.S., with tractor overturns being the leading cause of death.  Please thank a farmer for their efforts in bringing food to your table, and read on to learn the number one tip for how you can help avoid needless farming injuries this fall!

  • Pay attention while on the road – As farmers move equipment on highways, be patient with their slow moving vehicles.  Make sure to give them plenty of space and only pass if the road allows for it comfortably.

Post Planting Reflection

With Spring in the air and many seeds freshly planted in the ground, it is a great time to stop and reflect on this past planting season and ask the question; "How many ladders did you have to climb up to unload your seed boxes?" If the answer is anything other than 0, you may benefit from the safety and convenience our product can add to your operation!

Seed Slide Farm without Harm

Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization Awards Seed Slide Top Prize in National Pitch Contest

60 ideas traveled to Tampa to battle it out for the honor, but Seed Slide won the judge's votes by solving the serious problem of safety concerns on the farm.  We are grateful for the recognition and validation from this opportunity and hope to keep the momentum building as we move closer to our vision of eliminating farming-related deaths and injuries that occur during the unnecessary climbing of slippery wagons to unload seed boxes. 

Seed Slide CEO Award

A remote seed box opener?

Seed Slide made its way down to Kansas City to compete in the 2015 National Elevator Pitch Competition.  While there, many people got an education over the new trends in agriculture such as the shift of delivering seed in bags to seed tote boxes.  They were shocked to hear of the danger farmers go through to unload seed from these boxes, including climbing on top of 10 ft. tall slippery seed tenders with a high risk of falling and breaking bones.  Seed Slide found many fans because of its ability to prevent these accidents and allow farmers to farm safer and smarter, not harder.
