With the recent launches of the Speed-Tiller high-speed disk and AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing technology, and a new configuration for the Ecolo-Til 2500, Case IH is continuing its commitment to develop and provide agronomically correct soil management solutions for use in the 2020 season. The Case IH soil management portfolio offers more options to fit a range of operations, effective for both conventional and conservation tillage practices.
Every Case IH soil management tool is designed to promote a healthy soil profile and create the field conditions necessary for greater yields. Case IH recently launched the Speed-Tiller™ high-speed disk, furthering the company’s commitment to providing agronomically correct soil management solutions.
Designed to break soil compaction and improve water infiltration and root penetration, the Ecolo Til 2500 is now available in a rigid-mounted configuration that performs effective primary tillage in six shanks with 38-inch spacing. Long offered in a compact, convenient folding configuration, the new rigid-mounted option provides an increasingly simple, yet durable, option.
The new rigid-mounted configuration for the Ecolo Til 2500 is available with spring reset and shear bolt options designed to address any compaction removal producers need. While a spring reset option is perfect for producers who regularly experience rugged, rocky conditions, the shear bolt option will satisfy growers who need added shank protection under standard field conditions. Additionally, the no-till point on Case IH no-till shanks will feature an extended-wear fin, further improving the life of the shank.
Designed to create a high-efficiency, agronomically correct seedbed that ensures plants thrive, the Speed-Tiller high-speed disk is now available for producers to incorporate into their soil management practices for use in late spring and fall of the 2020 season.
In addition, AFS Soil Command seedbed sensing technology provides real-time insights from below the soil surface to help producers perform timely yield-enhancing adjustments that minimize planter row unit bounce.
In many fields, the seedbed floor is not even — it can be gouged and rough from maladjusted tillage tools, inexperienced operators or a set-it-and-forget-it mentality during spring tillage operations — and it’s hidden from view. These imperfections can cause the planter row unit to bounce, causing uneven seed placement or skips, and lower planter productivity overall. Inconsistent seed spacing and depth can lead to nonuniform emergence and limit yield potential.
