With growing farm sizes and an ongoing quest for larger yields, large, high-clearance, self-propelled sprayers have gone from being a niche product aimed only at custom applicators to a vital piece of farm equipment owned by individuals and applicators alike. Like most machinery on the farm, self-propelled sprayers are ballooning in size to accommodate the needs of today’s ag operations and help farmers maximize operational productivity and increase efficiency.

On April 10, 1872, the seeds of Arbor Day were sown in Nebraska, a state more commonly associated with prairies than forests, when J. Sterling Morton proposed the idea of a day dedicated to planting trees. A million trees were planted in that state on the first Arbor Day, and the success of the event led to the celebration of Arbor Day in all 50 states. However, when the topic of planting trees is discussed at Alliance Tire, our thoughts drift to the role delicate woodland soils and our tires play in the growth of trees.
Today’s agricultural machines are marvels of versatility—they can travel safely on the road, carry enormous weight, and work in the field while causing minimal soil compaction. However, often overlooked is how something as simple as tire pressure can affect everything from your equipment’s performance to your bottom line.

‘Twas the night before harvest and all through the farm
There was no need to worry, no cause for alarm;
The hands were all fed and early to bed,
The weather looked as if full-steam ahead.
