The window for every spring task is tight. Lose a week to weather or a major breakdown, and you can feel that window closing. But the weeds and bugs don’t care. And neither will you, if your spray equipment is ready. (more…)
If you wonder whether April showers will bring May flowers — and will get your crop off to a good start — consider adjusting your tillage regimen. Less tillage with the right tools can do more than preserve moisture.
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.
If you want to ensure plants come out of the ground at the same time, it all starts when seeds go into the ground. That’s key to getting the most from high-powered hybrids and varieties. It’s important to plan your strategies.
Whether buying or selling, you know how valuable forages are these days. And it’s expected to stay that way. But no matter what the markets do, putting up the highest-quality hay remains the goal. New products and technology in the Case IH hay and forage lineup can help.
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 winter shut down your schedule before you or your agronomist could pull soil samples, you still can — and definitely should — test soil this spring.
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.
