The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has announced three AE50 awards to Case IH for outstanding agricultural innovations. The recognitions highlight how Case IH equipment and technology has successfully helped farmers achieve maximum productivity. The award-winning innovations include:
- Patriot® 50 series sprayers
- WD5 series self-propelled windrowers
- Fast Riser 6100 series 3-section front-fold planters
“We pride ourselves on manufacturing high-quality equipment and solutions that help producers increase profitability,” said Scott Harris, Case IH global president. “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.”
Annually, ASABE distinguishes the 50 most significant product innovations in engineering and technology for agricultural, food and biological systems. The honor recognizes products that save producers time and reduce costs and labor, all while improving user safety. The awards will be presented at the ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) in February 2022.

Patriot 50 series sprayers
Patriot 50 series sprayers offer an 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.
WD5 series self-propelled windrowers
WD5 series 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 and cutting speeds up to 20 mph, 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.
Fast Riser 6100 series 3-section front-fold planters
Available in Brazil, the Case IH Fast Riser 6100 series 3-section front-fold planter offers the most 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.Source : Case IH
