Great Plains Manufacturing was established back in 1976 in Salina, Kansas where its headquarters is today. Their products include planters and drills that can be modified and improved with Exapta products.
OEM closing wheels will quickly overpack the furrow in no till farming, especially when soils are damp. This reduces emergence and prohibits root penetration of the sidewall—and that means lower yields. The Thompson closing wheel from Exapta does an excellent job of shattering the sidewall and avoids the pitfall of excessive frame weight that results in overpacking.

Packer wheels pushing on the soil surface do little to actually firm the seed into the bottom of the furrow. Using a Keeton seed firmer with our Mojo wire stiffener pushes the seed firmly into the bottom of the furrow, exactly where pressure is needed most. This ensures all the seeds get going at the same time for uniform emergence, which leads to higher yields.
