Successful Farming TV: Multi-Hybrid Planting

Explore the latest in planting technology (Show 1009)

You don't want to miss this week's episode of Successful Farming Television  (Thursday 9/8c on RFD-TV)!

How do you choose a seed variety? Do you pick a work-horse seed that will give you reliable yields even if conditions aren't optimal, or do you choose a race-horse that could take full advantage of good weather and better soils?  What about fields that have some areas better suited for one hybrid and other areas where a different hybrid would be best? Advanced Technology Editor Laurie Bedord looks at the newest advances in multi-hybrid planters that enable planting two different varieties in the same field at the same time. Tune in to see if it could work on your farm.

After that, Machinery & Technology Executive Editor Dave Mowitz visits with Case IH to find out what dealers are asking for Steiger tractors.

Then, we travel to Michigan to see a custom-built extra large skid-steer scoop in this episode's All Around the Farm segment.

Finally, it's Ageless Iron, and a restored Cockshutt plow that's part of the Yoder, Indiana, collection of Allen Adams.
