Case IH wins 3 awards for precision ag solutions

Case IH has been awarded for 3 agricultural innovations by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.

Case IH received the awards for AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing technology and agronomic control technology, Precision Disk 500 double shoot (DS) air drill with simultaneous single-pass seeding and fertilizing, and the Axial-Flow 250 series combine with new AFS Harvest Command combine automation system.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), along with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), praised all 3 products as top innovations among the AE50 honorees. ASABE, which annually distinguishes the 50 most significant product innovations in the areas of agricultural, food and biological systems, will present the inaugural Davidson Prize at Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida.

Axial-Flow 250 series combine with optional AFS Harvest Command

The Case IH Axial-Flow 250 series (Axial-Flow models 7250, 8250 and 9250) is equipped with a 2-speed electric shift ground drive transmission, adjustable rotor cage vanes and improved feeder house design. There are 3 levels of automation technology: Standard, Feedrate Control and Full Automation. The optional AFS Harvest Command combine automation system proactively senses and optimises machine performance for maximum efficiency.

AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing and agronomic control technology

AFS Soil Command sensor technology aims to help producers overcome unseen challenges to unlock a field’s full agronomic potential during tillage and create the ideal seed growing environment. AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing technology “allows precise measurement and optimisation of the agronomic quality of the seedbed from the tractor cab, helping operators make yield-enhancing adjustments that reduce unevenness and uneven seed placement”, says Case IH. AFS Soil Command agronomic control technology allows the operator to precisely coordinate control of every component of their tillage tool to optimise machine settings as field conditions change.

Precision Disk 500DS

The Precision Disk 500DS (see video underneath) air drill aims to save time and work, and to reduce production costs by allowing operators to seed and fertilise simultaneously in one pass. The Precision Placement Knife optimally positions fertiliser to increase the accessibility to growing plants. “Two ranks combined with 20-inch up-and- down movement of the parallel link row unit provide superior ground following, and lower weight means less compaction and more available horsepower to seed at higher rate,” says Case IH.
