Need something special for Valentine’s Day this year? We’ve got you covered.
Third-generation farmer Bob Welker, along with his two sons, Nick and Scott, have become YouTube sensations. It all began in 2012 when Nick Welker created a video featuring their operation to celebrate 100 years of successful farming. Since they started producing videos about day-to-day farming and equipment restoration, their YouTube channel has attracted over 300,000 subscribers.
After announcing a 2020 partnership with Case IH, here’s what Nick, Scott and Bob had to say about red equipment and how they balance family, farming and fame.
New technology can remove the guesswork from operating equipment and help drive management decisions, so it’s important to know which options are best for your operation. Consider incorporating these productivity-enhancing tech solutions into your 2020 fleet.
Equipment maintenance runs deeper than changing fluids and filters or tightening chains and belts. As you work to get your tractors, planters and tillage tools field-ready, remember that a little touch-up work or a whole new paint job can help preserve the longevity and value of your equipment.
There are a lot of tillage tools on the market today that leave fields looking level on the surface, but there is only one dual-season high-speed disk that creates an agronomically correct seedbed from surface to floor. Here are the top 10 things to know about the new Case IH Speed-Tiller™ high-speed disk:
From environmental variations to drainage to moisture and even plant inconsistencies, every grower faces variability. When it comes to setting the proper downforce, variability can add up to yield loss from late emerging plants or restricted root growth.
Short tillage seasons have caused growers to search for a more productive way of performing spring and fall soil management. In some areas, high-speed compact disks are increasing in popularity due to their high productivity capabilities. High-speed disks not only are highly productive but also can leave a nice-looking finish; but with this tool, there is more happening below the soil surface than meets the eye. Case IH agronomists hit the field to test a variety of high-speed disks, and here are a few of their findings.
While most producers know seed singulation can impact growth, it is often overlooked during planting season. Unfortunately, this can mean loss of yield and overspending on seed — which no grower wants.
Case IH Magnum™ and Steiger™ Rowtrac™ series tractors give producers several agronomic advantages that help increase productivity.
One example of Case IH Agronomic Design™ is the recent addition of a 21-inch-wide track. This track reduces the soil ground pressure and offers additional clearance in the root zone for flat row crops and bedded crops planted in 30-, 36- and 38-inch row spacings.
For more than two decades tracked tractors have been providing agronomic, traction and performance advantages for producers. They have played an integral part in production agriculture. During this time Case IH has earned a position of leadership and innovation by focusing on customer needs, as well as developing industry leading products like the Quadtrac® and more recently the Steiger™ and Magnum™ Rowtrac™ tractors. No matter the region or season, Case IH has a full range of tractor options to maximize productivity, yield, and the bottom line − sometimes less can be more.
