In 1998, Dawn Buell founded NATS Detasseling with two goals in mind. She wanted to create a company that parents could trust and seed corn companies could depend on.

Over 20 years later, Holly Buell (Dawn’s daughter and Director of Operations) would say we’ve met that goal.

Cultivating Excellence

NATS detasseling is the only detasseling company in Nebraska to have received the Integrity Award from the Better Business Bureau, and there’s a reason why.

Detasselers who work for us often tell us that the lessons they learn in the field and the relationships they make last them for life. We strive to make our work environment the best that it can possibly be, and our workers are some of the highest-paid detasselers in the state.

Since we receive so many applications, we are able to choose the highest quality employees around. When you work with NATS, you’ll notice why respect is a core part of our company culture.

We cover thousands of acres each summer and we would love to have you join us!

Our online application opens up every year on March 1st.

What People
are Saying

“I have enjoyed detasseling for NATS the last five years, and am so glad to have met many great people along the way. Without NATS I would not be the hardworking and driven individual that I am today. I would love to come back and detassel another year.”
