The 2000 series Early Riser planter has been re-thought from the ground up and was revealed last week at the 2016 National Farm Machinery Show by Case IH. The planer is the first to factory-integrate industry-leading seed placement technologies from Precision Planting® into a completely new system featuring a best-in-class rugged row unit.
“From all-new cast iron components to an electrically driven low maintenance metering system to the entire toolbar, we redesigned every inch of the new Early Riser planter,” explained Tony McClelland, Case IH planter marketing manager. “It was all based on direct customer feedback and field-testing. We made sure that this new planter is not only extremely accurate, it’s also robust enough to deliver precise placement across all terrains, crop types and speeds for faster, more uniform emergence.”
Designed for modern seed types, treatments, populations and conditions, the new planter can be easily customized to a range of soil types, terrain, fertilizer/chemical application needs and varying crop residue management practices. Plus, a streamlined design and tool-free crop changes and adjustments result in simpler maintenance.
McClelland said the planter is built for three things. Accuracy, durability and simplicity. Learn more by listening to my complete interview with Tony here: [wpaudio url=”http://traffic.libsyn.com/zimmcomm/nfms-16-caseih-mcclelland.mp3″ text=”Interview with Tony McClelland, Case IH”]
