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.
It’s tough to knock spring rains. The moisture is welcome and critical to help your crops get off to a good start. But with the recent rainy stretch slowing planting across wide swaths of the country, Case IH track technology can help bring timeliness and efficiency to your operation.
During the heat of fieldwork, the last thing you want is to sacrifice the quality of your work. And you certainly don’t want to spend valuable time spinning your wheels on routine maintenance. When you choose Case IH Earth Metal® sweeps, you can rest assured you’re covered on both fronts.
In any successful farming operation, equipment uptime and cost management settle near the top of the priority list. Case IH remanufactured parts provide a big boost on both fronts, helping you keep your machines running smoothly and economically.
A driving force behind Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) is to provide the information you need to help optimize performance, profit and productivity.

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.
As you wait for your fields to dry (or thaw) and prepare to hit the ground running, don’t forget to take a walk — across your hayfields. Spring is the best time to evaluate alfalfa stands, consider fertility and pest control, and prepare for a timely harvest.
