Tag: Early Riser Planter
In many parts of the country, this planting season provided a great reminder about how easily windows for fieldwork open and close. If — rather than spending a day or two preparing your planter — you’d prefer to be in the field planting next spring, take the time now to properly store your planter.
If pushing your clock ahead, a green hue across the pasture or college basketball brackets brings on that familiar spring itch, it’s important to apply the salve of patien
ce before you start scratching your fields. As difficult as that might seem, your soils will thank you — and your crops will reward you.
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.
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.
Just like you evaluate hybrid selection, weed control, fertility and other agronomic factors across your farm, the end of the growing season is a great time to evaluate how other aspects of your operation performed, including your equipment. Case IH fleet management tools can help.
Getting a jump on the 2018 growing season starts with making sure your equipment is field-ready before you store it. And now, participating Case IH dealers can help make year-end maintenance even easier and more cost-effective during the Case IH Inspect & Protect Sales Event.*
To be sure, efficiency is neither a new nor unusual goal in farming. But it’s reassuring to know that when conditions dictate, we’ve got the tools and the drive to accomplish even more in a tighter time frame. That’s precisely the scenario that’s played out across the western Corn Belt this spring.
When conditions are right and the weather’s cooperating, it’s tough to stop for lunch — let alone give your planter the once-over. But it’s time well spent, especially when you consider the delays a major repair causes.
Favorable conditions go a long way toward helping you achieve the all-important fast, uniform crop emergence. Having the right planting equipment — as producers across many southern states are experiencing — is a big help, too.
When you want to know if a pair of winter work gloves will keep your hands warm, you don’t trust test results from Jamaica. That’s why Case IH talked to farmers across the Corn Belt about their first year with the new 2000 series Early Riser® planters.
