Jamie Johansen

nfms-16-92-editedCase IH’s Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) has added three products to it’s line-up: AFS RTK+, ElectriSteer and AFS Connect™ Data Sharing. Growers got an up close look into the technologies at the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show and benefits of precision agriculture.

Radio delivered based solutions for growers are no more. Cellular guidance correction signals alleviate line-of-sight issues offering consistent accuracy within the network. “AFS RTK+ allows producers to easily achieve sub-inch accuracy for farming practices that require the highest level of precision, such as strip till or bedding,” said Leo Bose, Case IH AFS Marketing manager. “Better yet, they can rely on this secure, Case IH network solution to support their entire fleet.”

AFS Connect™ Data Sharing provides a cloud-based, integrated data-sharing platform. “Gone are the days of handing off USB drives,” said Bose. “With AFS Connect Data Sharing, producers can collaborate with their trusted third-party providers to make real-time decisions — saving time and money.”

The third and final new offering to AFS is the ElectriSteer providing affordable, after-market autoguidance solutions.
The universal steering motor connects with the AFS Pro 700 monitor to provide autoguidance for both used and new machines across all equipment manufacturers. “ElectriSteer is a quick, easy and affordable way for producers to realize the benefits of autoguidance for all their vehicles,” added Bose.
