Through our ongoing investment in research and development, Case IH is committed to finding new ways to help you be more productive and profitable — new ways to implement High-Efficiency Farming on your farm. It drives all we do. But it’s nice to have those efforts recognized, too.
The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) recently honored four of our latest innovations with 2018 AE50 awards. Developed through our Customer Driven Product Design (CDPD) process, these products support High-Efficiency Farming, a principle that ensures production practices match your individual operation — from field conditions and equipment to available resources and yield goals. Meet this year’s Case IH AE50 award winners:
Trident™ 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator
The Trident 5550 liquid/dry combination applicator is the industry’s fastest-converting combination applicator on a row crop chassis. It’s engineered from the ground up to be changed from liquid to dry and back again throughout three seasons of use. Quick changeover times, automatic and in-cab adjustments and precise application technology give you a flexible equipment solution to protect and feed your crops at the optimal time.
Steiger® series tractor with new CVXDrive™ continuously variable transmission
Case IH Steiger series tractors set industry records for fuel-efficient power and deliver a proven record of performance and productivity. The CVXDrive continuously variable transmission builds on that legacy by letting you take control of every season and every application. The CVXDrive is the first continuously variable transmission for an articulated 4WD tractor. It delivers the highest horsepower available on the market — up to 605 peak horsepower — so you can take on year-round farming applications.[Tweet “We’re honored to be recognized for improving farm productivity with four AE50 awards.

2140 Early Riser® planter with in-cab split-row lift system
The new 2140 Early Riser planter adds ultra-narrow row spacings of 15-, 20- and 22-inch with split-row configuration options so you can easily convert between crops. Our engineers designed this planter with excellent ground clearance for unmatched terrain flexibility and a pivot fold transport package so you can easily move from field to field and navigate tight field entrances.
Ultra-narrow row spacings are just one of the many features that helped the 2140 Early Riser planter earn special recognition from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.
Nutri-Placer® 930 fertilizer applicator with new High-speed Low Disturbance (HSLD) coulter
Capable of speeds up to 11 mph, the Nutri-Placer 930 fertilizer applicator with the new High-speed Low Disturbance (HSLD) coulter lets you cover 510 acres in a 12-hour day — all with superior agronomic performance. In extensive field testing, the HSLD coulter provided better residue cover and a more level surface finish than other coulter-style applicators. Spring or fall, the Nutri-Placer 930 HSLD helps you make the most of every acre and every application.
High-Efficiency Farming is not simply working faster. It’s about finding the perfect match of resources and equipment to get the most from every field, every piece of equipment, every season. Talk to your Case IH dealer about bringing High-Efficiency Farming to your operation.
