“Continue to try new things on your farm,” encourages Brian Hefty, co-host of RFD-TV’s weekly Ag PhD program, during a recent presentation on the Case IH Be Ready Stage at Ag CONNECT. What new practices are you implementing on your operation this year?
According to a recent Case IH producer survey, 85 percent of 1,109 producer respondents are considering new practices and technologies for their farm in 2013. Hear more from Brian and Darren Hefty, co-hosts of AgPhD, in this video. Highlights:
Top farming practice = cover crops
- Help reduce compaction and erosion, conserve moisture, and add nitrogen to the soil for next year’s crop
Top precision farming technique = variable-rate fertilizer application
- During planting season helps increase grain yields without increasing total nutrient inputs
Top equipment trend = vertical tillage tools
- Help obtain a smooth, even seed bed without compromising erosion control
