Are interest rates affecting equipment purchases? Is used machinery still popular? What equipment is selling well at farm auctions? Jeff Wille from Duwa's Auction Service in Wellman, Iowa talks about used implements, auction action, and more with Damian Mason.
Innovation doesn’t have to be overly complex to work. Sometimes a simple idea can save so much headache you wonder why the idea didn’t come along sooner. Such is the case with sprayer hub covers from Simon Innovations. As Steve Simon told XtremeAg’s Damian Mason, “This was my first product. I came up with the idea by looking at how much crop my hubs were knocking over — it was like taking a baseball bat to the corn plants.” Hub caps for your machine to protect the crops you work so diligently to produce: Simple yet effective.
Damian breaks down planter upgrades with Mike Evans and Chad Henderson.
Kelly talks about how he manages tough soils versus how he manages his good soils including the use of precision systems from CapstanAg.
Do Kelly, Matt and Temple see any differences in the rows planted by the Fendt Momentum Planter versus Kelly's John Deere? It may not be too early to tell.
Kicking The Tires! Engineered with innovative features that promise to increase planting uniformity, Kelly is putting the Fendt Momentum Planter up against his John Deere 1770 NT in a head to head yield contest in the rugged hills of Western Iowa. Stay tuned for the results this fall.
Kevin explains how he’s going to modify his planter to eliminate inefficiencies. Is your planter set up ideally for how and where you farm?
Chad takes a break from planting to show you how he manages all of the different products that XtremeAg is trialing this spring.
In the past there was little to no real relation between the input costs/ac and population/ac. Kelly did some math and discovered that with his planter system input costs and population are connected, making the case for variable rate seeding.
