How We Started

Elmwood Farm in Garnavillo Iowa, run by CJ&L Inc (a family farm corporation), has always strived for better land stewardship for future generations.

 

In 2013, Loyal Leitgen, President of C J & L Inc,  planted a cover crop on our farm with a crop duster. The cover crop did not turn well due to late planting by the crop duster.

 

We wanted a drone that could carry 20 - 30lbs and broadcast cover crops. The compact platform of a drone would be easier to use on smaller acreages. Seeding drones would allow more service providers in the market, and some proficient farmers the possibility of doing the jobs themselves.
