The first installment in Ag Tire Talk’s new podcast series – Driving Yield thru Tire Technology – is now available on

With interviews from Michelin, Alliance, Trelleborg Mitas, Titan Goodyear, Maxam, GRI, Continental and BKT, producers are now able to translate how new tire technology can have a major positive impact on yield.  Plus, with interviews from Central Tire Inflation System expert Precision Inflation, producers can understand the detail of how a CTIS system can play a key role in improving soil health.

As an example, on this first segment, Ag Tire Talk founder James Tuschner interviews David Graden, Operations Marketing Manager for Michelin Agriculture Tires.

In the podcast interview, Graden discusses:

  • Third party university studies revealing 4% yield gain by changing to low pressure VF tires.
  • How farmers can use the “Ask the Expert” chat feature- how to find optimum air pressures for the weight of their machines and application in a snap.
  • The advantages of using a central tire inflation system and clarifying “air systems ready” tire stampings.
  • Re-introduction of the BFGoodrich Ag tire line, strategy for the brand; that product is manufactured at the company’s plant in Fort Wayne, Ind.
