World’s First VF Flotation Tire:
Light Footprint On The Soil, Big Impact On The Industry

The new, all-steel Alliance Agriflex+ 389 flotation radial is the world’s first VF (very high flexion) flotation tire, purpose-built for manure handlers:
   • 30% less pressure means less soil compaction
   • 25% larger footprint

Then there’s the tread—stable on the road, sure-footed in the field, with non-directional bars for traction and a dense center rib for long life. So you’ll haul more and compact less.

Research finding ways to inject manure, preserve environment

What’s a responsible farmer to do? Manure injection is an important soil management practice that reduces the chance of manure runoff. But recent studies by Carol Adair and colleagues at the University of Vermont show manure injection can increase the release of harmful greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse gases contribute to the warming of our atmosphere. Carbon dioxide gets the most attention because so much is released as we burn fossil fuels but nitrous oxide is also a powerful greenhouse gas. There isn’t nearly as much of it in our atmosphere as carbon dioxide, but it is a much more potent greenhouse gas.
