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.*
Whether you’re driving the combine, towing a grain cart, deep tilling or simply bringing lunch to the field, you’re running on rubber. Ensuring you’re rolling on the right tires and tracks — and properly caring for them — can help the season go more smoothly and efficiently.
Whether wet fields are hindering your harvest or you’re rolling along in drier conditions, locating and breaking up hard pan or compaction layer during postharvest tillage can help improve moisture management heading into next year and beyond.
The knowledge we gain as we bring in our crops is almost as important as the bushels we harvest. You can put that data to work guiding seed selection and decisions about fertility or tillage this fall. But, just as you can’t afford to leave grain in the field, you need to take steps to ensure you don’t miss any data.
Let’s get to the point: Safety is the surest route to a timely, satisfying harvest. If you don’t have a safety plan, develop one. If you have one, stick with it. It might be the most important task you complete this fall.
We’ve all been there. A great crop sits in the field while you tackle your rainy-day checklist in the shop, waiting for the ground to dry. Get your combine ready for whatever Mother Nature has in mind by upgrading to a Mud Hog® powered rear axle.
Of all the hats you’ll wear between now and the end of the season, your crop residue manager hat might be the most important. How well you wear it will help determine yields next year and beyond.
It’s easy to get used to the tools and practices you’ve been using on your operation for years. Fortunately, farm-show season is a great way to find new products and learn new information to improve your returns.
No one needs to remind you it’s time to get ready for harvest. But these reminders can help you be more efficient in your preparation and, ultimately, help your season go smoothly.
