Harvest is well underway in many parts of the country. Favorable — and in some areas, overly dry — conditions have helped keep combines rolling and grain flowing this fall.
Fall is the time to lay the groundwork for next season. Soil sampling and testing are important steps. But to achieve an accurate fertility profile for your fields, you need to pull soil samples correctly.
As you push to grow more each season, you demand more from your equipment — especially your combine. You need more power. Improved fuel efficiency can help reduce costs. More higher-quality grain can boost income. The redesigned Axial-Flow® 140 series combines are ready for the challenge.
You can’t measure what you don’t monitor. Assuming the old business adage is true, do you have a strategy for evaluating this year’s crops? Before your attention fully shifts to harvest prep, now is a good time to plan your approach.
Achieving field efficiency is a key step to maximizing harvest potential. For many producers, that requires a move to bigger implements and higher horsepower equipment. More power and weight make tracks a logical option to minimize compaction and preserve soil tilth.
As harvest nears, Case IH track technology can help get crops out more efficiently so you can get back in the field with tillage equipment quickly. And it can help you do both with a lighter footprint.
At this point in the growing season, yield potential becomes reality. How do your crops look? By estimating yields, you can do more than satisfy your curiosity. Sound estimates can help you prepare for harvest and make better decisions.
You’ve meticulously gone through your combine. Your trucks are ready to roll. Grain bins, augers and other equipment are clean, lubed and set to move a big crop. But is your shop up to the challenge?
When you hire seasonal help, the goal is to find employees who can help you get the work done. Investing a little time up front can help you avoid hiring employees who would add to your workload.
Harvest time downtime — it’s about as fun as fencing in the rain, fixing a flat on Christmas morning or welding the underside of anything. You can’t eliminate breakdowns, but a Case IH Certified Maintenance Inspection can help reduce your combine’s chances of spending time in the shop this fall.
