Case IH pulled out all their best toys for the recent InfoAg Conference and I had the opportunity to talk to Ryan Blasiak about the fun going on in his booth.
He started with the newest version of the AIM Command nozzles for the Patriot sprayer. The system offers growers top-of-the-line control for consistent volume and the ability to manipulate droplet size. Users will also appreciate the single tip for multiple uses.
Customers are also showing a lot of interest in the AFS Connect telematic solution. The system allows growers to see what’s going on in a machine, no matter where they are, and provides 2 way file transfer.
“Probably one of the biggest selling features is the connectivity with the data part, getting the data, not only to their home office, but then they provide their agronomist with a password as well so they don’t have to go and get the USB out of the machine, bring it back, do all that. They can make more timely, informed decisions based on what that customer is doing,” Blasiak told me.
And for growers with connectivity issues, there is the new RTK cellular network. Rather than the traditional system that requires a line of sight and a limited reach of about 8 miles, the cellular network provides coverage anywhere you can find cell phone service. Not impressed with your carrier’s reach in more remote fields? Case works with many carriers to find the best signal before defaulting back to a satellite.
