Whether you’re still working around the weather to get those last fields planted or your crops are emerged and well on their way, an effective field scouting plan will give your crops the best opportunity to reach their full yield potential.
With today’s margins, any hiccup, large or small, impacts your returns. Still, when it comes down to it, harvest is the true measure of success and a big determining factor of future successes. Kevin Hruska, who farms over 44,000 acres near Gerald, Saskatchewan, will tell you his high-efficiency harvest starts with the Axial-Flow® combine.
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.
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. Watch the video to learn what they had to say about their first-year experiences.
A driving force behind Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) is to provide the information you need to help turn potential into profit. 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.
Whether it was serving breakfast to area farmers, driving a tractor to school or taking on a community service project, you likely have great memories about National FFA Week. Now — starting Saturday — you have a chance to help ensure this annual event leaves a similar, lasting impression on today’s members of the National FFA Organization.
No matter the size of your farming operation, you’re likely looking hard for ways to balance resources, labor and investment for maximum returns. It’s a proposition Canadian farmer Jason Girodat considers almost daily. Case IH equipment and technology are helping him meet the challenge.
