When you head to the field this spring, planter in tow, you’ve got a lot on your mind. But if you’re willing to shatter some long-standing assumptions, you can simplify your focus to a handful of agronomic factors. And that can go a long way toward achieving the fast, uniform emergence that produces picket-fence stands of photocopy plants and, ultimately, higher yields.
When you pull your planter into that first field each spring, what’s your mindset? Excitement? Anticipation? Cautious optimism? By first putting yourself in the mindset of the seed you’re planting, you can head to the field with confidence.
Forage quality determines the amount of supplemental feed required to maintain livestock performance. If your hay tools work as a system to achieve the right mix of power, efficiency and versatility to get the job done, they will help you harvest at peak nutritional value.
You spend a lot of time researching and selecting the right hybrids and seed varieties for your farm. It makes good sense to choose a planter that fits your individual operation — one that will help those carefully selected seeds reach their full yield potential.
Through our ongoing investment in research and development, Case IH is committed to finding new ways to help you be more productive and profitable — new ways to implement High-Efficiency Farming on your farm. It drives all we do. But it’s nice to have those efforts recognized, too.
Case IH experts took to the stage at this year’s Farm Progress Show to discuss what’s next in harvest measurement and technology.
Seedbed preparation starts at harvest with even residue distribution out the back of your combine. But it’s the next step that sets up your fields for success come spring — if you choose the right tillage tool and get it set right.
Whether wet fields are hindering your harvest or you’re rolling along in drier conditions, locating and breaking up hard pan or compaction layer during postharvest tillage can help improve moisture management heading into next year and beyond.
Let’s get to the point: Safety is the surest route to a timely, satisfying harvest. If you don’t have a safety plan, develop one. If you have one, stick with it. It might be the most important task you complete this fall.
From cereal grains to oilseeds to cover crops, you expect every seed you plant to reach its full genetic potential. Case IH Precision Disk™ air drills hit all the agronomic benchmarks that deliver top yields.
