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.
Seedbed preparation starts at harvest with even residue distribution out the back of your combine. But it’s the next step that sets up your fields for success come spring — if you choose the right tillage tool and get it set right.
Getting a jump on the 2018 growing season starts with making sure your equipment is field-ready before you store it. And now, participating Case IH dealers can help make year-end maintenance even easier and more cost-effective during the Case IH Inspect & Protect Sales Event.*
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.
When applying pesticides, the goal is to achieve 100 percent pest control with 0 percent spray drift.1 As University of Nebraska Extension specialists note, that’s a tall order when you can’t control all the variables. It’s important to focus on those you can.
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.
When conditions are right and the weather’s cooperating, it’s tough to stop for lunch — let alone give your planter the once-over. But it’s time well spent, especially when you consider the delays a major repair causes.
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.

When you want to know if a pair of winter work gloves will keep your hands warm, you don’t trust test results from Jamaica. That’s why Case IH talked to farmers across the Corn Belt about their first year with the new 2000 series Early Riser® planters.
