FARMS Helps Prepare Equipment for Winter Storage

10 Sep 2023

imageAs a successful harvest wraps up, many farmers are turning their attention to next spring, making decisions on fertilizer, crop rotations, and seed purchases. In the excitement of planning another potential record crop, regular maintenance may be overlooked. To help farmers remember how to winterize their equipment, AGCO introduces the acronym FARMS. FARMS consists of five steps farmers should take to protect their equipment investment and prepare for next spring: fill tanks, adequately lubricate, repair damage, maintain and clean and store equipment.

While FARMS provides general guidance on winterizing equipment, it may not be suitable for all types of equipment and owners should consult and the operators manual for instructions regarding their specific equipment.
