At the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasting Trade Talk I had a chance to visit with the fine folks from Case IH. What I learned was they are making more improvements for 2015 to better serve their customers.Zach Hetterick, center in the photo, is the High Horsepower Marketing Manager, says their high horse power has come up with a new tractor this year in the MAGNUM™ ROWTRAC™ tractor. Zach says no one tractor solution can fit every grower’s needs. But if you’re a row crop producer in a region with challenging soil types, putting tracks on the ground could be an option for in-field power. He goes on to add that if you farm in a region where soil conditions can make short planting and harvesting windows even shorter, Magnum Rowtrac can help start sooner, work longer and enjoy better yield potential.
Dan Klein, pictured right, is the Crop Production Marketing Manager, talks about precision planting with the new Case IH early riser planter for next spring. Case IH Early Riser Planters are designed based on sound agronomic principles and extensive customer input. Dan tells me this will offer the accuracy and flexibility the grower wants, providing season after season better stands, more uniform emergence, accurate populations, and in the end, higher yields.
