Case IH recently introduced AFS Soil Command, the first seedbed quality monitoring technology, available for its Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator.
“AFS Soil Command helps producers measure the agronomic quality of the seedbed. These measurements give producers the necessary data to optimize field cultivator adjustments,” says Chris Lursen, Case IH tillage marketing manager. “This proactive approach is the best way to create a high-efficiency seedbed before planting. It will lead to uniform emergence and increase yields at harvest.”
How it works
Factory-integrated seedbed sensors are strategically mounted to shank assemblies throughout the machine, providing real-time feedback on seedbed quality. The sensors monitor each time the shank begins to trip or float, alerting the operator to an uneven seedbed floor.
This factory-installed sensing technologyAFS Soil Command is seamlessly integrated into the Tiger-Mate 255 field cultivator. The AFS Pro 700 display and user-friendly interface make it easy for operators of any skill level to do agronomically correct tillage on ISOBUS-VT-compliant displays.
