Seeding windows are tight for winter wheat — about three weeks in most regions. The same goes for cover crops or forages for late-season grazing. It’s a good idea to prepare your seeding equipment now before fall work inches up your priority list.
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.
Filters and fluids may not be as flashy as new Case IH models or Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) technology, but when it comes to increasing productivity out in the field, they’re just as important. Quality filters and fluids can mean the difference between a successful and an inefficient harvest. Filters and fluids from your Case IH dealer are the only ones you need in your shed – and the lifeblood of your equipment. Their advanced design and durable construction are rigorously tested to ensure the best protection for your equipment.
We haven’t even lit Independence Day’s first firecracker. So, it’s understandable if putting your combine through its paces isn’t high on your to-do list. But between caring for your crops and preparing for the county fair, and between putting up hay and attending your kids’ ballgames, harvest time can sneak up on us.
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.
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.
When applying pesticides, the goal is to achieve 100 percent pest control with 0 percent spray drift.1 As University of Nebraska Extension specialists note, that’s a tall order when you can’t control all the variables. It’s important to focus on those you can.
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.
Case IH designed its Precision Disk™ single disk air drills with the technology to help make every seed count. But if you raise spring-seeded cereal crops, soybeans or specialty crops, such as canola or flax, across Northern climates, then you know the demands of an already short season require you to be prepared.
No matter your weed control program — preplant burndown, pre-emergence foundation herbicide, postemergence application or all the above — spray windows play an important role in getting your crops off to a good start. Will your sprayer be ready?
