It’s important to glean more than grain during harvest. You’re likely already gathering precision farming data. When you supplement that information with notes and observations from the combine cab and at ground level, the additional knowledge can help you make productive adjustments heading into 2017.
Agriculture is an innovation industry. Always has been. Today — as we strive for better, more efficient ways to feed a growing population while pushing through a challenging ag economy — our efforts demand a sharper focus. It’s time to Rethink Productivity.
Efficient crop production is more than a catchphrase these days. It’s a requirement. At the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association MAGIE show, Case IH debuted two new products — AIM Command FLEX™ advanced spray technology and the Nutri-Tiller 955 strip-till applicator — designed to help you more efficiently grow every bushel you harvest.
Farm-show season is a great way to get a firsthand look at new products and gather valuable information that can help you evaluate the purchases and practices you’re considering on your operation. As you make plans to attend your favorite shows and events this fall, be sure to pencil in a visit with Case IH.…
Certainly, there are more pleasant places to spend a summer day than inside a grain bin. But replacing a bearing on an auger during the heat of harvest isn’t much fun either. Spending some time on maintenance now will help keep the grain moving this fall.
Before you harvest this year’s crop, get a firsthand look at a better way to plant next year’s.
Although it may be hard to pinpoint the revenue lost to contaminated spray equipment, the damage is obvious. Whether grain prices are at a peak or in a valley, taking the time to carefully and thoroughly clean your sprayer is well worth the effort.
If summer’s dog days have you looking for a reason to get out of the heat, managing the precision data you’ve gathered could be just the excuse you need. Plus, it’s an important task that deserves your attention before harvest sneaks up on us.
Whether you rolled through planting season mostly unhindered, with the typical ups and downs, or with more challenges than you care to remember, it’s time to start evaluating how your planter performed.
Today, along with raising crops and caring for livestock, many farmers tirelessly promote agriculture and help tell our industry’s positive stories. Case IH recently made the work back home on the farm a little easier for several of these advocates.
