New Leader

Since 1939, New Leader Manufacturing (NLM) has maintained one goal: to build the best for the best. Located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the heart of the Midwest, we incorporate advanced technologies throughout the entire production process for the equipment we manufacture, from initial design to the finished piece.

NLM’s New Leader brand of broadcast spreaders are used to spread fertilizer, lime, compost and micronutrients for utilization by a variety of crops including corn, soybeans, wheat, canola, potatoes and cotton. Through a complete commitment to excellence, New Leader has developed partnerships with the world’s leading application equipment manufacturers, which has made New Leader the leading brand of crop nutrient applicator.

New Leader broadcast spreaders are built by people committed to integrity, honesty and increasing well-being to all. Our dedication to 4R nutrient stewardship is seen in the ongoing pledge we make to continuous improvement.

Precision application starts with precision manufacturing and New Leader designs and manufactures application equipment that creates the optimal spread patterns for a wide range of nutrients and seed. Precision manufacturing produces the best results in the field by placing material where it is needed which results in more responsible nutrient utilization.

New Leader supports 4R Nutrient Stewardship and Sustainability through the advancement of quality and innovation in nutrient application equipment that allows for the right nutrient source to be placed at the right rate at the right time and in the right place.

For example, New Leader’s G5 technology utilizes 16 section swath width control, dynamically and simultaneously adjusting the spinner assembly left/right and fore/aft to give the operator a highly responsive and reliable method to apply the right amount of nutrients in the right place. This gives increased accuracy for point rows, when finishing a field with less than a full swath, and running half width swaths — all equating to less overlap, and increased precision.
