Our Story

The endeavor that became Exapta Solutions was founded by Matt Hagny in 1998, with the simple vision of providing better tools for no-till seeding. Exapta also relies on the necessity-driven innovation of many farmers and researchers to find solutions for high-performance planting and production. To this day, Exapta’s forte is in understanding how plants grow, and how the no-till seed-installation process can be more effectively accomplished. We strive not to sell you some device, but to provide useful information so that you can get the most out of your seeding equipment—more acres, better emergence, higher yield, and greater profit. Once armed with knowledge, we hope you will see the value and wisdom of our products.

Consistent performance is no accident. Exapta stacks the odds in your favor.

Matt Hagny

President

Matt Hagny, who grew up on a grain & cattle farm in S. Dakota, migrated to Kansas in ’93 to set up shop as a consulting agronomist for no-till systems. He also offered a custom no-till seeding service during the ’94 to 2001, which led to many frustrations and insights for better methods of no-till seeding. Matt has traveled the globe, both as a consultant and a student of no-till, and has learned from some of the best. Matt conducts highly acclaimed Seeding Schools every year to assist producers in better understanding all aspects of no-till seeding equipment, ranging in subject matter far beyond Exapta products.

Cody Cole grew up farming alongside his parents in Southeast Idaho. He continues to farm with them, but has since branched out and started his own operation. He mainly farms grain; however, with the current grain market and the overall state of agriculture, he knows that he needs to start implementing different strategies. Cody currently practices no-till, along with cover crop rotations, using his recently purchased John Deere 1890 air drill. cody.cole@exapta.com
