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.

Innovation in everything from seeds and treatments to equipment and tires has enabled earlier planting and faster-growing, higher-yielding corn.

In cases when you simply must enter wet and muddy fields, here are some steps you can take to increase flotation, maximize traction, and reduce soil compaction.

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. Because there are so many components of the business farmers can’t manage, it’s critical to take control of what they can. Two such factors farms can affect are cost and compaction, which are more closely linked than you might expect.

Prepare Your Combines Tire for Harvest

With so many things in farming that you can’t control—for example, weather, input costs, and commodity prices—it’s important to take charge of what you can.

Consequently, you’ll want to take steps to ensure they’re in top working condition before the big event to maximize productivity and avoid unplanned downtime.
