Case IH and its South African distributor, Northmec, will showcase the brand’s full line of agricultural solutions at Nampo 2018, one of the most important equipment exhibitions in Africa, now in its 52nd edition. The show will see the first public appearance of the brand new 2000 Series Early Riser® planter and the new AIM Command FLEX® advanced spray technology for the Patriot sprayer range.
Daniel Bordabossana, Marketing Manager for Case IH Middle East and Africa, said: “The Nampo show is the perfect platform to give our new 2000 Series Early Riser planter great exposure. This is a unique product, which has already shown its value in the tests we ran last year, where it really distinguished itself from the competition. At Nampo we will be able to share with the attending visitors all the advantages of this excellent new product as well as our wide offering of farming solutions.”
High precision and productivity with the new 2000 Series Early Riser® planter
The Case IH planter is the first to factory-integrate industry-leading seed placement technologies from Precision Planting® into a completely new system featuring a best-in-class, all-new, rugged row unit. 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.
The 2000 Series Early Riser planter proved its worth in field tests conducted in 2017, which revealed that its seed placement accuracy resulted in early emergence one to three days faster than with other planter row units.
Case IH’s extensive tractor offering on display
The wide range of Case IH tractors will be showcased at Nampo – from the very popular JX45T Compact (36kW) utility tractor all the way up to the mighty Steiger 600 (447 kW) and tracked Quadtrac 600 (447 kW). Also on display will be the Limited edition Puma, created last year to mark the 175th anniversary of the brand.
Axial-Flow® 140 Series and 240 Series combines
Case IH will display its 140 Series and 240 Series combines featuring the brand’s proven Axial-Flow® single rotor technology that revolutionised combine harvesting for its simplicity, grain quality, grain savings and crop adaptability.
The Axial-Flow 240 Series now features the brand’s telematics system as standard, enabling the customer to monitor the machine and its working functions from their mobile devices, laptop or PC, increasing the overall efficiency of the harvesting operation. The AFS AccuGuide system is also available as standard, simplifying wheat, barley, canola and soya bean harvesting.
