The easier it is to transfer your precision farming data and manage who you share your data with, the better you can use that information to help guide decisions about your fields and your operation.
Late-season haying can be especially challenging. Fewer hours of daylight, heavy nighttime dew and an increasing likelihood of precipitation often tighten the window for high-quality forage production. Case IH ThirtyPlus™ hay preservative can help you be more efficient in your haying and hit optimal timing.
Although some might consider it counting your chickens before they’re hatched, yield estimating can be a valuable planning and harvest preparedness tool. Best of all, it’s relatively easy, requiring only a little of your time and a few simple calculations.
Whether you’re eyeing the end of your haying season with one last cutting of high-quality alfalfa or perhaps considering leaving a few acres of grass hay as insurance against a tough winter, Case IH can help you slice through the toughest conditions and finish the season strong.
Too wet, too dry; rarely just right. Putting up high-quality hay is a balancing act that requires good timing, reliable equipment and a little bit of luck. Monitoring moisture levels in your hay crop throughout the production process can help harvest better, more consistent high-quality hay.
Farming is more than a job. It’s a lifestyle dedicated to getting your hands dirty. A lifestyle of chasing quality and progress. A lifestyle that lives in the hearts and minds of producers who have contributed to 175 years of equipment innovations by embracing Case IH and its dedication to customer-driven product design.
Whether monitoring fields from the ground or from up above, you’re bound to find a handful of problem areas that have you stumped. A plant analysis can be a useful diagnostic tool. And in many regions, the window to gather samples is open.
Shrinking daylight hours can make those harvest or tillage days seem even longer, if not a little bit harder. Upgrading your equipment to LED lighting can help ease some of the strain and stress of the season while helping you stay productive longer.
“We’re trying to be the most efficient we can be with what we have,” says Jason Strode. Jason and his father, Richard, farm about 5,200 acres of corn and soybean crops near Owensboro, Kentucky, where they’ve begun focusing on nitrogen management and have looked harder at providing nitrogen to the crop when it needs it.
