Growing Profits: Carbon Farming and Ag Tires

Tires for Farmers Harvesting Carbon

The number of carbon farming opportunities and interest in carbon capture continue to grow as more and more businesses both inside and outside of agriculture take steps to make their operations greener. While carbon farming is still in its infancy, this could develop into a good, market-driven opportunity that enables farmers to make some money while they manage the health of their soil. 

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.

Lowering Farm Fuel Expenses with Tractor Tires

Tractor Tires Cut Farm Fuel Costs

Fuel is one of the largest expenses for a farm and while farmers can’t control the cost of fuel, there are some steps they can take to reduce the amount their tractors use—such as ensuring optimal wheel slippage and proper tire inflation pressure. In addition to improving fuel efficiency, optimal wheel slippage and proper pressure can lead to other cost-saving benefits such as decreasing time in the field, reducing yield-sapping soil compaction, and minimizing wear and tear on equipment.  

Just how much can you save by improving farm equipment efficiency? A bulletin from Michigan State University Extension estimates that poor tractor performance wastes nearly 150 million gallons of fuel each year in the U.S.
