Case IH has selected Água Boa, a Brazilian region renowned for its high agricultural productivity, as the location for its Connected Farm project. This is to bring 4G infrastructure to the region.
“Case IH is recognized as the brand of choice for technology-oriented farmers. It has been instrumental in introducing cutting edge technologies to Brazilian farmers,” said Vilmar Fistarol, President Latin America, CNH Industrial. “The Connected Farm shows how the brand is leading the Brazilian digital agriculture revolution.”
This Connected Farm aims to demonstrate how rural connectivity increases in-field productivity, even in an already highly productive region. A 4G internet connection installed at the farm enables the entire operation, and its machines, to report data and be monitored by the new AFS (Case IH’s precision farming package) Connect Center, based at the Case IH Sorocaba Plant in the state of São Paulo.
