Digging Deep into Your Soil’s Health with Alliance and a Penetrometer

Soil compaction is on a lot of farmers' minds with all the wet weather this spring. When soil compacts, soil particles are pressed together and pore space between them is reduced. This has been shown to decrease emergence and growth and limit nutrient uptake in crops, which all adds up to reduced yields. In fact, Iowa State University Extension reports that soil compaction can result in 10% to 20% loss in yields and minimized profits. One way to fight back against compaction is to learn the state of your fields with the use of a penetrometer, then take steps to reduce the impact of your equipment on sensitive soil with IF/VF tires.

Off Track: Why Choose Tires over Tracks

John Deere or Case? Ford or Chevy? Tire or tracks?  After decades of discussion, farmers still disagree over the appropriate answers to these questions. While we won’t weigh in on Deere vs. Case or Ford vs. Chevrolet, we do have an opinion (although it might be a bit biased) about the superiority of tires to tracks and we’re pretty sure that, after reading this, you’ll agree that tires are equal to or exceed tracks in performance, while costing substantially less.

Prevent Stubble Damage to Tires and Reduce Farm Costs

As part of the never-ending chase for higher farm yields, today’s corn is bred to be super resilient. Unfortunately, some of the advantages gained from these crops (increased resilience and higher yields) can be negated by costly downtime and tire replacement, thanks to the menacing short, stout, post-harvest stalks they leave behind. Fortunately, ATG builds some of the most durable, puncture-resistant, and stubble-proof agricultural tires in the industry. Here are just a few of the ways our Alliance farm tires are being engineered to resist stubble damage.

Tire Tales: Too Much Tractor Tire

The trend for agricultural machinery to become increasingly large and powerful might lead farmers to believe that bigger is always better. Though larger machines frequently lead to increases in overall productivity, having the biggest tires may, in fact, reduce the efficiency of your farm equipment. Recently, I helped a customer dispel the mistaken belief that “bigger is better” by outfitting their tractor with the tire size they needed to optimize performance and avoid the other pitfalls that could arise out of “over-tiring” your equipment.
