Haslbeck 123156 381 Snow can´t stop an Case either
Snow can´t stop an Case
Case IH catched for his presentation the day where the
winter gave his first intermezzo. But they demonstrate also,
that adverse conditions can´t stop a Case IH!

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
Very nice photo!!

But I don't know if you know that it's very bad when you
plow snow under!? But this is a demo, so it doesn't matter I
think.

Do you have other photo's of that case??

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
It's very very bad to plow the snow under. And I'm sorry but
it's not so special that the case keep going. You allways
got a nice clean and dry furrow so one side of the tractor
always has grip.

Yes, we have all learned that you shouldn´t plow under the
snow. But you haul 1000 hp to a location and you have payed
many for advertisement and all know that this presentation
is on this day. You have no chance. You have to do your job.

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
why they have an older version of CVX. I think they have
more ground preparing devices as tractors, so they use one
of a near by owner of a old version!

Not coming from a snowy part of the world I have never
considered the effects of incorporating snow. I assume that
any bad effects would stem from low temperature effects on
soil biota???

Wat is versmeren in het engels?

The structure of the soil is shit by the big amount of water
(the snow).
It´s if you´re plowing imediately after a few days raining.

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
I guess it would make a difference if you are seeding
something right after it... Shouldn't make a difference if
you plow in the fall and prepare the soil in the spring...

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
Hi Stu,

It is a problem the cancel those presentations, so they plow
at snow. I think that this inch of snow isn´t a problem for
the soil.

What do you say to the above picture? Someone has plowed a
frozen lake!! We had a very wet or better wathery fall in
2003 and this field get fooded. The fist chance to plow it
was under frozen conditions.

You ask about low temperatures and biota. We say: Frost is
the best plowing man. Because he breaks the soil
compessinons and what you have plowed in the fall with one
clod from one end of the field to the other, becomes during
the winter to a perfect seedbed because of the frost.

Re: Snow can´t stop an Case
Hi folks

very nice pictures Theo ;-) especially the ploughed lake
looks very funny

It's interesting to see, that farmers usually do not hesitat
to plough a frozen field, whereas it is very bad to plough a
field covered with snow.

I think this is because snow is (frozen) water, and water
takes a lot of energy to get warmer (high heat capacity).
The ploughed snow will thus take a lot of energy from the
soil to melt and get warmer. Therefore the soil takes
considarably longer to warm up (in the spring), which is the
bad effect.

Keep on posting!
