Great Plains Ag, a division of Great Plains Mfg., Inc., is a company proud of its Midwestern roots. Based in Salina, Kansas, Great Plains Ag has been a leader in seeding equipment since its inception in 1976. Now a Kubota Company, Great Plains not only remains a leading producer of Grain Drills, but is also recognized across North America as a leader in Vertical Tillage and Conventional Tillage Equipment, Fertilizer Applicators, Sprayers, Planters, and Compact Drills.
We have manufacturing facilities across North Central Kansas. We have learned that the work ethic of smaller Kansas communities is second to none and, as such, Great Plains Ag Division has plants located in Salina, Ellsworth, and Tipton, Kansas. Many of our employees come from rural areas and have agricultural backgrounds – so they know the products they build and understand how our customers will use them. This knowledge helps us build a product that will perform as expected for years to come.
We also have Research and Development facilities in Assaria, Kansas, where we use the latest computer aided design technology to design our equipment. Once a working prototype is built, it is rigorously tested in the lab, on the test track, and in many different, demanding field conditions. When the engineering is proven, the Assaria facility designs and builds all the production tooling required to manufacture the product. Our company's products are designed and manufactured in compliance with the latest industry standards. When you buy a Great Plains product, you know that it has been tested – and passed – in real-world situations that are more rugged and demanding than it will likely see in its service life.
Our commitment to our dealers and our customers is visible in the delivery of the product to the dealership. To ensure the product arrives in the same condition as it left our plant, we have our own trucking company. Great Plains Trucking has 75 trucks dedicated to delivering our products safely, securely, and on schedule.
Dependable parts and service after the sale have helped Great Plains Ag gain many new dealers. Our commitment to service is something we take great pride in. Through online parts ordering, knowledgeable phone support, or a personal visit if that’s what it takes, Great Plains Ag is willing to go the extra mile for our customers. With dealers across the United States and Canada, there is always reliable help close by.
