The aitchison brand has been around for more than 35 years. It is synonomous with innovation in seeding and soil management equipment.
The company has claimed many “firsts” for the introduction of new technologies that have greatly helped farmers becoming more effective and efficient.
In cultivation equipment the Easyflow® cultivator became the first wideline trailed field cultivator soon followed by the Earthquaker® aerator and the Agrispred® line of fertilizer spreaders. Many competitors followed these successful Aitchison products but even today Aitchison is still one of the most prominent players in this market.
The company is best known for direct drilling e.g. Seedmatic® with a range of tine and disc drills which were originally introduced as specific highly effective pasture renovation tools. Such is the versatility of this extensive drill range with its unique Aitchison sponge seeding system that is now effectively used to sow everything from cereals to lucerne and brassicas. The now famous Aitchison inverted T knock on/off boot opener was designed by founder Peter Aitchison in combination with Massey University more than 30 years ago but is still regarded as a benchmark for seeding results in just about any seeding environment.
