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.
Today’s corn and soybean genetics make for stronger, bigger yields. But the same genetics that make them resistant to weather, disease and pests make them tough to cut — and tough on your machine.
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.
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

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.
Out of sight, out of mind is no way to build a seedbed. New seedbed sensing technology from Case IH makes preparing a high-efficiency seedbed top of mind and lets you monitor your progress right from the tractor cab.
Getting your fertilizer down in tight spring or fall application windows is about more than fast field travel — especially if your application equipment doesn’t suit the soil conditions, field terrain or the way you like to farm. The new Case IH Nutri-Placer® 940 HSLD fertilizer applicator meets those objectives and more.
Forage quality determines the amount of supplemental feed required to maintain livestock performance. If your hay tools work as a system to achieve the right mix of power, efficiency and versatility to get the job done, they will help you harvest at peak nutritional value.
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.
