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.
It’s understandable if putting your combine through its paces isn’t high on your to-do list right now. But between caring for your crops and preparing for the county fair, and between putting up hay and attending your kids’ ballgames, harvest time can sneak up on us.
The high-performance equipment you use to run your farm is valuable machinery. Case IH 4400 series corn headers and Steiger® Quadtrac® tractors hold their value better than any other corn headers or tracked tractors on the market.
Timing fertilizer applications to when your crops need them most is sound nutrient stewardship — and so much more. It’s about maximizing yields and your financial resources. The full lineup of Case IH application equipment can help you implement in-crop fertility programs so you can improve your yield potential.
A driving force behind Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) is to provide the information you need to help optimize performance, profit and productivity. Other features can help ease your workload so you can be more efficient with your time. But neither can happen if you’re not getting the most from your technology.
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.
Diverse farming operations from California to the Carolinas — or from Brazil to Bangladesh— raising everything from apples to zucchini and corn to soybeans, can benefit from varying levels of automation. Case IH has led the way and now is laying framework for the technology.
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.
When you select the ideal row width for your operation, you’re aiming to maximize every acre’s potential. But you can’t get there if your combine header doesn’t do its part. Rest assured, the completely redesigned Case IH 4400 series combine headers get the job done — and then some.
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.
