THE CONCEPT

Located directly in front of the Gas City location, along State Road 22, our field plot features 9 trials that showcase the Case IH 2100 series planter with Precision Planting technology. Farmers will get to follow along throughout the growing season and then experience the results at a field day the end of July.

Seed Bed Preparation with Case IH 335 VT

  • Categories

On May 11, 2018, the sun was shining as we broke ground on the Precision Farming Field Plot for the first time. The Case IH 335 VT was selected as the tool of choice for managing crop residue, airing the soil and incorporating nutrients. The day before, urea fertilizer was broadcasted to the field at a rate of 200lbs N/Acre creating a need for quick action.


Urea has a high volatilization potential and requires incorporation into the soil. After a week of occasional rainfall, the conditions became favorable for a secondary tillage pass. The field was worked in final preparation for creating a desirable seedbed just hours before planting.
