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.

Conservation practices—like cover crops and no-till—are at the forefront of carbon farming, but other factors, like the tires ag equipment rides on, can have an enormous influence on successful implementation and a farm’s profitability.

Knee-High By the Fourth of July

Corn, Tires, and Old Adages  

The saying knee-high by the fourth of July was long used by farmers to judge the success of their corn crops—it means that growing conditions have been favorable, the crops are off to a good start, and big yields are expected come fall—and the adage remains popular today, despite being antiquated. Innovation in everything from seeds and treatments to equipment and tires has enabled earlier planting and faster-growing, higher-yielding corn.

The Cost of Soil Compaction at Harvest

Minimizing the Expense of Soil Compaction

Farming is a tough business. As we've seen again and again this year, uncontrollable factors such as weather and commodity prices can upset even the best-laid plans—turning bumper crops into busts and high hopes into low margins in a matter of minutes.

Two such factors farms can affect are cost and compaction, which are more closely linked than you might expect.
