Tires for a Herbicide Shortage

Tires Help Overcome Herbicide Challenges 

Supplies of herbicides with the main active ingredient glyphosate have tightened, which has caused prices of in-stock supplies to skyrocket. Glyphosate has been the most widely used herbicide in the United States since 2001 and is predicted to remain in short supply throughout the spraying season. This will force farmers to make some tough decisions, in particular those farmers who plant glyphosate-ready crops, who have no-till systems, and who use glyphosate to terminate cover crops. They’ll either end up paying jaw-dropping prices—if they can even find glyphosate-based herbicide, that is—or changing the way they manage weeds. 

One factor you can count on no matter how farmers handle the shortage of glyphosate is the significant role tires will play.

Tractors and the Tires that Changed Farming

Tractors and the Evolution of Ag Tires


One of the most significant changes to farming in the last century has been the advent and adoption of the tractor and the subsequent entrance into the mechanical age of farming. Tractors ended farmers’ reliance on animals for labor—according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, in 1920 America had 25 million horses and mules, most of which were used for farm work. Tractors steal the spotlight now, but innovations such as computerized controls, smart sensors, and telematics have helped push them to the forefront of farming—continually improving their performance and evolving alongside them as they have grown over the years in size, speed, and power.
