Ag Issues & Insights
General Wesley K. Clark drew a record crowd in the Case IH booth at Ag Connect Expo. General Clark’s comments focused on the national security implications of the United States’ foreign oil dependence and agriculture’s role for providing alternative energy sources, such as ethanol. “In the agricultural business, you are the most productive sector of America. You’re the sector that made America great,” he declared. “Now we’ve got to take that productivity out of agriculture and move it to the next level. And that is to produce a liquid fuel that will free us from dependence on imported oil in the near term.”
Each day you face new government regulations and tighter controls from processors and export markets. Yet to be successful, you need technology that boosts productivity as it meets regulations. You need the power to do more with less fuel, and the advice of experts who understand your challenges. For example, our next generation Steiger series tractors are powerful, reliable, fuel-efficient, and easy to maintain – allowing you to be ready.
It’s a constant challenge – more and more demand for food, fiber, and fuel and less and less farmland to grow it on. To succeed, producers like you need equipment that delivers the most – from planting through harvest. And, you’ll need support from experts who put your needs first.
The world’s population keeps growing, and agriculture has to keep pace. You need innovative equipment to get the most out of every acre and advice from people who know your ground like they know their equipment. The world of farming is changing. Case IH can help you be ready. For example, our Axial-Flow combines help producers be more efficient by providing cleaner grain samples out of the field.
