Efficient crop production is more than a catchphrase these days. It’s a requirement. At the Illinois Fertilizer & Chemical Association MAGIE show, Case IH debuted two new products — AIM Command FLEX™ advanced spray technology and the Nutri-Tiller 955 strip-till applicator — designed to help you more efficiently grow every bushel you harvest.
Better use of time, inputs and equipment is critical in improving production efficiency. Each of these new products helps in all three areas.
The Nutri-Tiller 955 strip-till applicator delivers one-pass seedbed efficiency, helping you capitalize on the agronomic advantages of conventional tillage along with the economic and conservation benefits of no-till.

Via @Case_IH”]A redesigned row unit, featuring an all-new shank assembly, helps the Nutri-Tiller 955 create the consistent, precise rows today’s precision farming technology demands. Below the soil surface, the Nutri-Tiller creates an ideal seedbed for fast, uniform germination, all while precisely placing nutrients deep in the root zone where your growing crops need them. An optional air package (available on 30- and 40-foot models) lets you pair the unit with the Case IH Precision Air™ 5 series air cart. This combo includes a new modular metering system that seamlessly integrates with Case IH Advanced Farming Systems to provide variable-rate, deep banding of up to two dry fertilizers, plus anhydrous ammonia, for the ultimate in one-pass efficiency.
A new row unit on the Nutri-Tiller 955 creates an ideal planting zone to help crops get off to a fast, uniform start.
The new Nutri-Tiller 955 is available in working widths from 20 feet to 60 feet (8, 12, 16 and 24 rows). Single-point depth control makes for quick in-field adjustments, and new VF radial tire options improve flotation and reduce compaction.
AIM Command FLEX is the ultimate spray system. Even in the most rugged, challenging field conditions, this advanced spray technology delivers consistent, flexible and accurate application, regardless of ground speed. Pulse width modulation (PWM) technology improves sprayer productivity by controlling product flow and pressure more precisely than conventional rate controllers. With this new system, you can operate up to 36 separate boom sections, while achieving consistent application at a wider range of speed.
All Model Year 2017 Case IH Patriot® sprayers will come factory equipped with the nodes required to run AIM Command FLEX. This model year also marks the silver anniversary of Case IH application equipment leadership. We’re celebrating with 100 25th Anniversary Patriot 4400 and Patriot 3340 sprayers.
