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.
