CHATSWORTH – While many farmers are completing planter rebuilds and autosteer installations ahead of planting time, others are looking ahead to the 2023 season.

“We’ve got guys placing orders on planter equipment and steering equipment already,” explained Tim McGreal, owner of Nu-Ag Technology in Chatsworth.

Nu-Ag hosted its annual spring open house in March featuring manufacturer updates and features from companies such as Ag Leader, DigiFarm, Soil Max and SD Drain.

When it comes to spring planting, McGreal hopes growers remain patient as recent soil moisture recharges the soils.

“Everybody likes these nice days to get out, get equipment out and see if there are any problems to try and get things ready to go.”

McGreal, who farms in Central Illinois between Fairbury and Gilman, feels 2022 will be a good year.

“We had a good, hard freeze over the winter so we should have some good planting conditions,” he said.

Looking back at the fall of 2021, McGreal said his harvest went well even though a few big rain events kept farmers out of the field for several days at a time when trying to cut soybeans.

“Overall, it was a good harvest and we had a nice little rally in the grain markets,” McGreal admits.
