Seed bed preparation plays such an important role in determining your crops’ yields that it warrants your full attention. This spring, it likely deserves a healthy dose of flexibility, too.
Soil compaction is one of those things that happens when you’re trying to get ahead. Instead, it can set your fields back for years. Consider the consequences before you try to gain a day or two this spring.
If you expect you’ll be up against some especially tough field conditions this spring, consider a new tillage tool or an upgrade to an existing one. But make sure you get the right one for the job.
Whether you feed the hay you put up or sell it, or if you run a custom-haying operation, your goal is the highest-quality product possible. Case IH technology can help you hit the mark more often and more consistently.
Whether the fruit falls near or far from the tree, it makes the orchard grower cringe. So does the thought of spending the day cramped on a tractor. The new Orchard Cab from Case IH protects tree crops and the tree farmer’s state of mind.
Every time you set foot — literally — in your fields, you compact the soil. Imagine the compaction your fully loaded combine caused as it crisscrossed a too-wet field last fall. Keep in mind the threat soil compaction poses to yields and know how to combat it.
Now that we’re well into the hay-feeding and hay-marketing seasons, you likely have a good idea about how the 2014 hay crop measures up. That makes this an excellent time to consider implementing steps that can help improve this year’s haying season.
The work your planter does this spring will have a big impact on how hard your combine works next fall. Sure, there are limitless factors that will help determine your crops’ yield, but setting them up for success is critical. And upgrading your planter technology is a great place to start.
