For more than 170 years, we have recognized the important role farmers play in providing safe, quality food and fiber for people around the world. We are excited to team up with sister company, Ram Trucks, in a campaign that declares 2013 “The Year of the Famer.” Did you see the Ram Trucks Super Bowl ad that kicked off the campaign?
We had a great week at AG CONNECT Expo in Kansas City, Mo.! Our product experts and engineers had a wonderful time visiting with producers to help them turn ideas into action. Especially popular were the new Precision Disk 500T and Precision Disk 500 drills, Patriot® 2240 sprayers and Steiger® Rowtrac™ tractors. Did you have a chance to talk with any of our representatives or check out our new offerings?
When analyzing the results from a recent Case IH producer survey, Brian and Darren Hefty were not surprised that 85 percent of the 1,109 producer respondents are considering new cropping practices and technologies in 2013. What new methods will you use this growing season?
For those of you with specialty crops or smaller fields, the smaller and lighter Patriot® 2240 – a Class 2, self-propelled sprayer – may be a perfect fit. It offers narrower track spacing than its larger family members and boasts more ground clearance than any competitive sprayer in its class. Have you been looking for something like this?

Give your plants more breathing room AND increase plant populations without changing cropping practices. Case IH Twin-Row planters allow you to stagger seed in two rows, eight inches apart, on 30-, 36-, 38- or 40-inch centers without having to make modifications to existing harvesting or spraying equipment. For example, a corn head set for 30-, 36-, 38- or 40-inch rows can harvest twin rows at the same time. (more…)
In our last Be Ready blog post, we shared findings from the Global Agricultural Productivity Report® (GAP Report®). To summarize, the report stated that even though the use of new agricultural technologies has made food more abundant and has helped reduce hunger, we won’t be able to meet future global food demand unless productivity increases are achieved in every region of the world. Do you agree? How much more productive do you think agriculture can be? (more…)
North American farmers are among the most productive producers in the world, but rising food needs from a growing world population require us to increase productivity even more. Do you think we can meet this demand? What improvements do you plan to make in your farming operation next year? (more…)
