Wading through a digital mountain of precision farming data can seem daunting. But interpreting and analyzing that data is critical to decision-making in today’s agriculture. Putting the best available software and hardware technology to work can help to make the process more efficient.

Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) from Case IH includes a single software suite that helps you maximize the value of your AFS technology. With it, you can:
- Manage data from multiple sources, including the AFS Pro 700 display, your crop consultant, your ag retailer or other suppliers.
- Analyze data at various layers and across several years to help target areas for improvement.
- Utilize your data to make better decisions about tillage, fertility, seed selection and other inputs.
AFS software also allows you to view your precision farming data. It offers the flexibility and analysis power to support your individual operation’s precision farming needs. Use it to generate yield maps and prescription maps and to create soil sampling maps. You can create and print reports and import satellite imagery. With all that information in hand, you can work with your crop consultant, ag retailer, seed supplier or other advisers to develop a plan for next year and longer term.
