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.
Of all the hats you’ll wear between now and the end of the season, your crop residue manager hat might be the most important. How well you wear it will help determine yields next year and beyond.
When your operation demands a large planter, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice agronomic performance. And you shouldn’t need a pry bar or can opener to get it into and out of your fields.
By most accounts, last year’s crops came off with few hiccups. And then the switch flipped. In many areas, the season’s first run of bad weather shut down most fall fieldwork — and that was that. If you’re wondering how you’ll get your fields ready to plant this spring, it’s not too early to strategize.
Air drills long have been the seeding implement of choice among no-till farmers. Thanks to the latest advancements in technology and Case IH Agronomic Design™, today’s air seeders help deliver optimal yield potential from every seed, regardless of crop.
As you wrap up harvest and prepare for another growing season, it’s time to reevaluate your operation and look for ways to maximize productivity next year.
These days, fall tillage is as much a part of harvest as crisp, frosty mornings and meals served in the combine cab. It’s a critical step in maximizing returns from today’s top-yielding crop genetics. To get there, you must set up your tillage equipment to accomplish all it’s designed to do.
