To be sure, efficiency is neither a new nor unusual goal in farming. But it’s reassuring to know that when conditions dictate, we’ve got the tools and the drive to accomplish even more in a tighter time frame. That’s precisely the scenario that’s played out across the western Corn Belt this spring.
In many parts of the country, this planting season provided a great reminder about how easily windows for fieldwork open and close. If — rather than spending a day or two preparing your planter — you’d prefer to be in the field planting next spring, take the time now to properly store your planter.
When applying pesticides, the goal is to achieve 100 percent pest control with 0 percent spray drift.1 As University of Nebraska Extension specialists note, that’s a tall order when you can’t control all the variables. It’s important to focus on those you can.
You can’t control your crops’ growing conditions, but you can improve the conditions in which they grow. AIM Command FLEX™ advanced spray technology helps you protect your crops more precisely and efficiently than ever.

If you’re stuck waiting for your fields to dry out so you can get your crops planted, you’re hoping to avoid similar conditions when you go to harvest them. Outfitting your Axial-Flow® combine with a Mud Hog® rear-wheel assist axle now can improve your harvest — no matter the conditions.
A high-performance combine is a valuable piece of equipment. Case IH Axial-Flow® 140 series combines hold that value better than any combine on the market.1
Waiting out the weather — it’s a spring tradition most of us would rather avoid. This year, it’s testing the mettle of many in the western Corn Belt. Still, it’s important to remain patient and stay ready for when conditions improve.
With your know-how, the right equipment, the latest technology and a little bit of weather luck, high-quality hay is a beautiful — not to mention, valuable — thing. We call it high-efficiency hay.
Managing nutrients — especially nitrogen — is among crop production’s hottest topics. From the right nutrient source to the optimal timing to the proper placement, the new Case IH AIM AccuPlacer™ can help you be more efficient and effective in your fertilizer applications.

When conditions are right and the weather’s cooperating, it’s tough to stop for lunch — let alone give your planter the once-over. But it’s time well spent, especially when you consider the delays a major repair causes.
