Making the case for Case IH

Case IH wins three awards for its windrowers, sprayers and a planter equipment.

By Andrew Joseph,

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has announced that Case IH has garnered three awards for outstanding agricultural innovation helping farmers gain productivity.

The award-winning innovations are:

  • Patriot 50 series sprayers (pictured);
  • WD5 series self-propelled windrowers;
  • Fast Riser 6100 series 3-section front-fold planters.

The Patriot 50 series sprayers provide exceptional operator environment, complete vehicle control, enhanced connectivity, and integrated technology to provide consistent, accurate applications every season. These sprayers are agronomically designed to help operators get into fields sooner with less compaction. A range of connected solutions provides the next steps toward remote management and optimization of machines, data, diagnostics, agronomic inputs, and precious resources.

The WD5 series of windrowers allow operators to get to the field faster and muscle through the tough spots, all without sacrificing harvest quality or comfort. Transport speeds up to 30 mph (48.3 kph) and cutting speeds up to 20 mph (32.2 kph), together with simplified operations and innovations, such as Field Cruise and the Triple Windrower Attachment, bring peak operational efficiency. These windrowers also feature integrated Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) technology, including the AFS Pro 700 display, to manage autoguidance, to control key machine functions and to monitor windrower performance.

Only available in Brazil at this time, the Fast Riser 6100 series 3-section front-fold planters provide a very high level of productive and agronomic three-section front-fold planter for growers and contractors who transport frequently on public roads. One operator can convert from 13-meter planting width to 3.2-meter regulatory road transport width from the tractor cab in one minute versus multiple operators taking numerous hours for competitive 3-section planters. The area of principal use is row crop planting of crops, such as soybeans, corn and/or cotton, in no-till to conventional tillage systems with 45-, 50-, 76- and/or 90-centimeter row spacing.

Scott Harris, global President with Case IH said: “We pride ourselves on manufacturing high-quality equipment and solutions that help producers increase profitability. Case IH equipment is designed, built, and tested by farmers. This recognition from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers reflects our commitment to providing innovative solutions that meet today’s farmers’ needs.”

The innovation awards ag products that save producers time and reduce costs and labour, all while improving user safety.

The awards will be presented at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) in February 2022.

Video: Research underway for ground vs. drone fungicide application

Ohio Ag Net took a firsthand look at the beginnings of Practical Farm Research from Beck's Hybrids that recently took place, investigating the difference between fungicide application on corn and soybeans by drones versus ground rigs. Jared Chester of Beck's joins Joel Penhorwood to discuss the research and how they are looking into the question.
