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.
Depending on the year, spring rains can bring needed moisture or frustrating delays. Regardless, rainy days provide time to catch up on maintenance and repairs. And that can reduce downtime when the sun shines.
A combine or tractor delivery brings excitement — if not giddiness — to the farm. A new program from Case IH and CNH Industrial Capital for late-model pre-owned equipment delivers even more good vibes. And it comes with new-product peace of mind.
No matter how carefully you disassemble a repair job, a part or two almost always shuffles out of order. MyShed™ from Case IH can clean up that mess and help keep you organized in many other ways.
Two of agriculture’s most prestigious events — World Ag Expo and the National Farm Machinery Show — are so big, it’s amazing one week can contain them. But that’s exactly what will happen in Tulare, California, and Louisville, Kentucky, respectively. Case IH will be at both, and we would enjoy the opportunity to meet you there.
Preplant, pre-emerge, postemerge or in-season — the application window always seems squeezed. You’ll be ready if you spend some time now servicing your spray equipment. Plus, you’ll reduce the likelihood that downtime shatters that window.
When it comes to events, the annual Cattle Industry Convention has “work hard, play hard” down pat. It’s also earned its reputation as a place to learn, make and renew acquaintances, and set the course for success. You can accomplish all that and more simply by connecting with Case IH at Booth 7045 next week in San Antonio.
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.
If you’re looking for a break from cleaning the shop, catching up on bookwork or other winter chores, and if the surf and turf at the local steakhouse is the closest you’ll likely get to a beach vacation, let your mind and your mouse wander the Case IH websites. It can be a great tonic for cabin fever.
With margins squeezed tighter than a gopher in a hay baler, efficiency and cost containment have become agriculture’s near-term mantra. Effectively marketing your crop to maximize income is critical, but as you prepare for the coming growing season, consider the expense side of the ledger.
