A reliable business partner can be as important to your farming operation as timely rains and a good pair of work boots. As you look for ways to make your farm more efficient, manage costs and increase production, here are some of the top reasons to consider a closer relationship with your Case IH dealer:
Whether from the seat of your combine during harvest or from the office chair, as you analyze this year’s harvest data, you’ve likely identified areas where weeds, diseases or bugs hurt yields. The latest spray equipment and application technology from Case IH could be just what you need to gain back those bushels.
It’s that time of year. Time to give your operation the once-over. Time to reexamine the way you farm and to look for changes — no matter how small — that can improve production. It’s time to break the status quo and shatter assumptions. It’s time for High-Efficiency Farming.
With harvest winding down, it’s important to take care of the precision-farming data you gathered throughout the season so it’s ready for analysis. We sat down with Leo Bose, Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) Marketing Manager, to get his recommendations on year-end data management:
Evaluation and decision-making are part of everyday life in farming. As you know, now is the ideal time to dig deeper and identify adjustments that can bring big benefits.
Even though you might have parked your sprayer for the season weeks or even months ago, it’s important you spend a little more time with it before you park it for the winter. We sat down with Mark Burns, Case IH sprayer marketing manager, to pick his brain about the ins and outs of long-term sprayer storage. Here’s what we learned:
When everything’s rolling along smoothly during the heat of harvest, it’s tough to tempt fate. But precision-farming equipment isn’t set-it-and-forget-it technology. So, even if your preharvest preparation was thorough, it’s likely time for a checkup.
You can gain a lot of insight from the combine seat. It’s a good primer — and good balance — for what you learn from your office chair as you analyze the data. But first, you need to ensure you’re collecting accurate data.
Agriculture is an innovation industry. Always has been. Today — as we strive for better, more efficient ways to feed a growing population while pushing through a challenging ag economy — our efforts demand a sharper focus. It’s time to Rethink Productivity.
Properly used, the field data you gather this harvest season can positively impact decisions for years to come. But only if it’s properly gathered. Preharvest preparation is critical to helping ensure your combine is ready to collect accurate data.
