Eastview Grain Brings Strip Tillage to Eastern New York

Environmental Tillage Systems (ETS) announces Eastview Grain as an official SoilWarrior® strip tillage and nutrient placement systems dealer based out of Lowville, New York. Owner Aaron Miller and his team at Eastview Grain will sell and support SoilWarrior zone tillage and nutrient application equipment throughout eastern New York. This new partnership allows ETS to expand their sales efforts and reach a growing strip-tillage market.

AaronMiller“Efficiency is the biggest reason we chose the SoilWarrior,” commented Miller. “A one-pass system with variable rate (VRT) fertility and seedbed preparation prior to planting made it a no-brainer.” Among the advantages provided by the equipment for Miller and other farmers using the system in his area, he said, “Benefits include proper fertilizer placement and increased soil health. Plus, I don’t have to pick rocks.” The unique coulter system on the SoilWarrior rolls over rocks rather than pulling them to the surface like shank-style machines.

“Aaron has a lot of excitement about the SoilWarrior,” said Brent Brueland, ETS VP Sales & Marketing. Miller has already spread a lot of awareness about strip tillage in his area. Eastview Grain hosted a demo day for 40 people on September 5, 2019 in Lowville, NY. Miller also demonstrated the SoilWarrior at the New York 4R Field Day on October 15, 2019. The 4R Field Day hosted by the New York State Agribusiness Association focused on the 4Rs of Nutrient Stewardship – Right Source, Right Rate, Right Time, and Right Place. Over 70 attendees heard from experts on topics including NRCS programs available to support implementation of the 4Rs and extracting value from precision ag mapping. The event also included live equipment demonstrations such as strip tillage and nutrient placement, soil sampling, sprayer calibration, drone imaging and cover crops.
