Case IH designed its Precision Disk™ single disk air drills with the technology to help make every seed count. But if you raise spring-seeded cereal crops, soybeans or specialty crops, such as canola or flax, across Northern climates, then you know the demands of an already short season require you to be prepared.
That makes it imperative your seeding equipment is ready. Watch the video to learn more about what makes our Precision Disk air drills ideal for High-Efficiency Farming. And then read on for tips to help you prepare for whatever Mother Nature throws at you this spring:
- Review the manual. Your operators manual is the definitive resource for your planting equipment. Spend some time with it — it provides the depth and detail you need to help you prepare, maintain and adjust your equipment.
- Additional resources. Download and review our productivity tips booklet for Precision Disk 500 and 500T single disk air drills. It provides quick, easy access to all types of information, from storage removal steps to preseeding inspection checklists to adjustments and settings and operational tips.
- Calibrate. Product metering calibrations are critical to accurately apply the correct seeding rates. We recommend calibration at the beginning of the season, when changing crops or seed meter rolls and at other times during the season. Watch this video for an easy-to-follow calibration process.
- Work with your dealer. Only your Case IH dealer has what it takes to protect your equipment investment. From genuine Case IH parts to diagnostic techniques that can spot important maintenance issues before they become costly repairs, your dealer is trained by the organization that made your machine. Trust them to help keep your equipment humming.
When your fields are fit for seeding, you can count on the Precision Disk single disk air drills for a new level of productivity and agronomics. The row unit cuts residue, opens a high-quality, uniform seed trench, delivers the seed perfectly and closes the trench for improved germination and plant stand establishment. And even with all these features, it requires less maintenance and less power to pull. That helps you be more efficient, improves yield potential and makes your operation more productive.
Whether you’re ready to upgrade or need help readying your existing seeding equipment, talk to your Case IH dealer. It’s one of the best ways to give your crops the fast start they need to reach their potential.
