From environmental variations to drainage to moisture and even plant inconsistencies, every grower faces variability. When it comes to setting the proper downforce, variability can add up to yield loss from late emerging plants or restricted root growth.
While most producers know seed singulation can impact growth, it is often overlooked during planting season. Unfortunately, this can mean loss of yield and overspending on seed — which no grower wants.
When it comes to maximizing your operation’s productivity and yield, it’s all about having the perfect plant. From prepping the seedbed to ensuring the best growth possible, Case IH provides you with our precision technology to optimize your fields and create the ideal planting and growing environment with every season. Take a look at how…
It’s one thing to test equipment when soil, moisture and other conditions are just right. But to truly evaluate performance, you need to measure it against the toughest conditions. That’s exactly what one of the country’s most well-known farm families did this spring. And the 2000 series Early Riser® planter delivered.
To be sure, efficiency is neither a new nor unusual goal in farming. But it’s reassuring to know that when conditions dictate, we’ve got the tools and the drive to accomplish even more in a tighter time frame. That’s precisely the scenario that’s played out across the western Corn Belt this spring.
Waiting out the weather — it’s a spring tradition most of us would rather avoid. This year, it’s testing the mettle of many in the western Corn Belt. Still, it’s important to remain patient and stay ready for when conditions improve.
Favorable conditions go a long way toward helping you achieve the all-important fast, uniform crop emergence. Having the right planting equipment — as producers across many southern states are experiencing — is a big help, too.
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.
Spring planting wouldn’t be spring planting without up-and-down weather. But there comes a time when we would welcome an extended dry spell to bring the season to a timely conclusion. Many farmers in parts of Illinois and Indiana are more than ready to see the dust fly again.
Recent rainfall has helped improve soil moisture across the northern Plains and will help already-planted crops get off to a good start. While you’re waiting for your fields to dry, it’s a good time to make sure your planting equipment is ready to roll.
