If you were in Decatur for the Farm Progress Show, you probably noted the Case IH presence. We admit it – Case IH was hard to miss. But if you weren’t able to join us we invite you to take a look at the video recap of opening day.
We also hope nobody missed a chance to tweet their response to the question, “What does Efficient Power mean to me?” Here’s how it worked: Everyone was invited to describe what Efficient Power meant to them personally. There weren’t many rules- you had to include a #EfficientPower hashtag to identify your tweet, and of course you had to observe the Twitter 140-character limit. Other than that, the topic was wide open.
With two-thirds of the Case IH workforce based in the field, we truly do talk to farmers every day, so we know what a challenging growing season it has been so far.
That’s why we couldn’t resist sharing some good news!
According to this article, “USDA Chief Economist: Strong, Volatile Crop Prices Ahead” in TopProducer, USDA’s Joseph Glauber forecasts an optimistic outlook for agriculture over the next few years, thanks to record-level exports. (more…)
Thanks to the invention of Smart Phones, farmers are conducting business where the real action is happening – in the field!
Today’s cell phones double as a farmer’s personal secretary, weather center and crop manager. You may already be aware of the convenience of receiving email and accessing the internet through your phone, but with the development of Smart Phone applications, the sky is the limit for what you can achieve from your tractor seat!
We’ve heard a lot about some resourceful Smart Phone applications that we wanted to share with you. Take a look at what we found and let us know if you use any of these applications or if you have discovered other useful “apps.”
It’s a valid question asked by many producers on a regular basis, and one that Case IH can answer.
Diesel engines have evolved into more powerful and fuel-efficient engines since their invention more than a century ago. While this evolution is good for productivity in the fields, it’s bad for emissions.
Check out Case IH’s latest “From the Field” video post on The Weather Channel titled, “How can our farmers meet emissions standards?”. This video post discusses how Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology not only helps Case IH high-horsepower tractors meet Tier 4 emissions regulations, but also how it creates cleaner oil, less maintenance, and the power producers need to get the job done.

A bountiful harvest begins with your planter. Preparing for planting means more than selecting the right genetics. It’s important to remember some critical planter maintenance tips and adjustments for this year’s planting:
