Would you head to the field in the morning before fueling up? How about before checking the fluid levels in your tractor? Or inspecting and lubricating your equipment? Now, how often do you check the air in your tires before you pull out of the shed? If a pressure check isn’t routine, it could be…
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.
