Hagie Manufacturing History
Ray Hagie Ray Hagie never intended to produce the world's first self-propelled sprayer. He wanted to grow hybrid corn. In fact, his first piece of equipment - a detasseler - was built for his own seed corn fields. But as Hagie Hybrids continued to grow, so did demand for his "above the crop" equipment. Hagie's Iowa farmstead became the birthplace of Hagie Manufacturing - and the world's first self-propelled sprayer

Early Model A Three generations, millions of acres and more than a half-century later, the combination of pride, honesty and old-fashioned work ethic that Ray Hagie instilled in the company still exists at Hagie. It's a principle we call Hagie UpFront - and it can be found not only in the product innovations we continuously introduce (like our trademark UpFront sprayer booms), but also in the way we work with our customers, employees and suppliers.

We're proud of the fact that the Hagie name adorns the most innovative application equipment in the industry. If you're already a Hagie customer, we want to thank you for your business and welcome the opportunity to work with you again. If you've never owned a piece of Hagie equipment before, we want to earn your business. We invite you to learn more about our all-new lineup of STS and DTS sprayers. We honestly don't think you'll find a better sprayer - or a better company.

Hagie History
Check out a brief history of Hagie Manufacturing Company in the video link to the left.

Here is an excerpt from the video:
"In the early 1930’s, Ray Hagie had just graduated from college and was returning to the family farm to help raise cattle and grow crops. While at college he had learned of a new method for growing seed corn called cross-breeding. He was so intrigued by the idea that he started to experiment with the process on his own. He first grew seed for himself, but his neighbors soon wanted to try his seed corn as well. By the mid 1930’s Hagies Hybrids was born."
