Although some might consider it counting your chickens before they’re hatched, yield estimating can be a valuable planning and harvest preparedness tool. Best of all, it’s relatively easy, requiring only a little of your time and a few simple calculations.
It’s understandable if putting your combine through its paces isn’t high on your to-do list right now. But between caring for your crops and preparing for the county fair, and between putting up hay and attending your kids’ ballgames, harvest time can sneak up on us.
Too wet, too dry; rarely just right. Putting up high-quality hay is a balancing act that requires good timing, reliable equipment and a little bit of luck. Monitoring moisture levels in your hay crop throughout the production process can help harvest better, more consistent high-quality hay.
From ground-engaging pull-type models to highly productive self-propelled applicator equipment, Case IH offers a full line of application solutions that help feed, protect and nurture crops — from start to finish through every season.
Whether you’re still working around the weather to get those last fields planted or your crops are emerged and well on their way, an effective field scouting plan will give your crops the best opportunity to reach their full yield potential.
As you evaluate what the latest technology can bring to your farming operation, it’s helpful to know what these advancements can do for you today, as well as how they might play into future offerings.
Big or small, harvest breakdowns can be a major source of frustration — you can’t always prevent them, but how you choose to deal with them will impact the amount of stress and downtime they cause you. Using online tools like the Case IH Partstore website and the MyShed™ app to quickly find and order replacement parts for your Case IH equipment is critical for rethinking the productivity of your operation and making sure things run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
Jim Tubbs and his son, George, have farmed about 9,000 acres on their operation in western Kansas, which was homesteaded some 100 years ago by their family. However, the Case IH equipment they use is new to them.
The high-performance equipment you use to run your farm is valuable machinery. Case IH 4400 series corn headers and Steiger® Quadtrac® tractors hold their value better than any other corn headers or tracked tractors on the market.
Diverse farming operations around the world require varying levels of automation. This technology can advance the precision farming solutions already in place on all types of farming operations — including yours. But it’s helpful to understand how these advancements can fit the way you farm.
