This month, John Deere Publishing has revised four of its current educational books in the company’s comprehensive line of 2006 textbooks and guides. These books include “Combine Harvesting”, “Hay and Forage Harvesting”, “Tillage” and “Preventive Maintenance”. These educational books cover agribusiness management practices, agricultural machinery operation and adjustments, and equipment servicing and maintenance.

“These easy-to-read manuals help growers at any skill level enhance and improve their operations, from the do-it-yourselfer to the novice,” says Gary Aversing, John Deere Publishing. “The manuals are not John Deere-specific; they guide the user through diagnostic, repair or maintenance procedures regardless of the manufacturer.”

Knowledge learned and applied can help growers maintain equipment and keep it safe to run, save on operating costs, and in the end, make for a more profitable growing season. These “how-to” books help growers stay competitive.
