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.
As you wrap up harvest and prepare for another growing season, it’s time to reevaluate your operation and look for ways to maximize productivity next year.
If you don’t yet have a soil-sampling plan for your fields, it’s time to dust off the soil probe or contact your agronomist. With a soil analysis in hand, you can use the new Case IH Nutri-Tiller 955 strip-till applicator to help create a high-efficiency seedbed and apply up to three fertilizer products in a single pass.
These days, fall tillage is as much a part of harvest as crisp, frosty mornings and meals served in the combine cab. It’s a critical step in maximizing returns from today’s top-yielding crop genetics. To get there, you must set up your tillage equipment to accomplish all it’s designed to do.
No matter where or what you farm, harvest concerns and challenges revolve around similar themes: weather, prices, yields and, of course, more weather. The far West and Pacific Northwest are no different.
Wet fields hindering harvest across large swaths of the Northern Plains have many farmers searching for a way to dry their fields. Although there’s no quick fix, one potential solution is to improve moisture management throughout the growing season by helping it move deeper in the soil profile.
Crop residue brings a long list of benefits to your fields. Crop residue also can bring numerous challenges to your fields. The steps you take this fall can help you maximize the value of this year’s residue while helping ensure a fast, uniform start for next year’s crop.
From the header on your combine to the service trailer behind your pickup and from the overhead wires across the end of your driveway to the soles on your work boots, nearly every aspect of harvest contributes to your safety. Make sure you give each detail the attention it deserves.
Whether you’re considering bringing advantages of strip-till to your operation for the first time or upgrading your current equipment so strip-till can do even more for your farm, the new Case IH Nutri-Tiller 955 strip-till applicator makes your decision easy. And this fall is a perfect time to make it.
