Ag Issues & Insights
Whether monitoring fields from the ground or from up above, you’re bound to find a handful of problem areas that have you stumped. A plant analysis can be a useful diagnostic tool. And in many regions, the window to gather samples is open.
Case IH believes strongly that member organizations bring great value to agriculture. Our more than 20 years of unwavering support for Farm Bureau only solidifies that belief. Information sharing, one-on-one interactions and ongoing involvement greatly enhance our understanding about the needs and issues important to you.
Although some might consider it counting your chickens before they’re hatched, yield estimating can be a valuable planning and harvest preparedness tool. Best of all, it’s relatively easy, requiring only a little of your time and a few simple calculations.
It’s understandable if putting your combine through its paces isn’t high on your to-do list right now. 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.
Whether you’re still working around the weather to get those last fields planted or your crops are emerged and well on their way, an effective field scouting plan will give your crops the best opportunity to reach their full yield potential.
You invest a lot in your equipment. You expect it to be ready to roll — and keep rolling — when you need it, in the toughest conditions. You can help ensure your machines meet these demands by protecting and maintaining them only with the best filters and lubricants.
There are no shortcuts to a safe harvest. That’s why Case IH — as it has done annually for more than 30 years — recently launched its ProHarvest support tour with a safety training session.
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 when rains threaten to slow planting down, Case IH track technology can help bring timeliness and efficiency to your operation.
Editors notes: Case IH strongly supports programs that are driving agriculture globally, such as the non-profit organization Tractors for Africa. All tractors through this program are fundraised and managed by Tractors for Africa.
On your farm, High-Efficiency Farming is about small changes in your agronomic approach that can yield big gains, such as adding technology to your planter for better seed placement. In the African country of Burkina Faso, High-Efficiency Farming starts with a Farmall® tractor.
