It is a lesson that we have learned very well over time. Timing is everything. Those lessons were really driven home by the weather challenges we had in 2019. The timing wasn’t always right, but you had to learn to make hay when the sun was shining. When timing isn’t on your side, you need to have a strengthening of quality. However, Case-IH knows that if you have good timing and good quality, you are going to be in the best position to succeed. Their sprayers are helping farmers do just that.
Mark Burns is in marketing for Case-IH’s applicator lines. He says in 24 years of working with Case-IH, he has learned how they are able to help with the timeliness of applications when you need to make them.
If you think that you might be too small of an operation to justify owning your own sprayer, Burns says it isn’t about how many acres you run. The real threshold is how many acres of each crop you plant. An operation of 1,000 acres can easily be an application operation of five or six thousand acres when you factor in the number of passes you make.
Burns says that spraying is more than just squirting liquid on a plant. You need to make sure you have the precision that Case-IH sprayers can deliver.
