The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers recognized three new agricultural innovations pioneered by Case IH, Racine, Wisconsin. The innovations are for the Case IH AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing technology and agronomic control technology; Precision Disk 500 double shoot (air drill with simultaneous single-pass seeding and fertilizing; and (pictured) Axial-Flow 250 series combine with new AFS Harvest Command combine automation system. AFS Soil Command sensor technology helps producers overcome unseen challenges to unlock a field’s full agronomic potential during tillage and create the ideal seed growing environment. The Precision Disk 500DS air drill saves time and work, and reduces production costs by allowing operators to seed and fertilize simultaneously in one pass. The Case IH Axial-Flow 250 series (Axial-Flow models 7250, 8250 and 9250) leads the industry in reliability and efficiency, with 2-speed electric shift ground drive transmission, adjustable rotor cage vanes and improved feeder house design. The ASABE, along with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, praised all three products as top innovations among the AE50 honorees.
