PARTNERS IN PRODUCTIVITY

Case IH works with Precision Planting — a division of The Climate Corporation—to deliver precision technology options that fit your unique operation and help you maximize your productivity in the field. Together, we’re making it easy to combine the best planter row unit with advanced precision technology, allowing each row to function like an independent planter. Producers can assemble a planting technology package that fits their specific needs. And customers pairing Case IH planters with Precision Planting products can count on their Case IH dealer to support every aspect of their operation.

1255 EARLY RISER® PRECISION-PLANTING-READY OPTION

Customers can add Precision Planting products to all planters, but for those who want the vSet vacuum meter and vDrive electric drive system, the new 1255 Early Riser planter can be purchased Precision-Planting-ready for simple integration.

In our studies, the Early Riser planter has proven its in-field advantages compared to conventional row units. Producers using the Case IH Early Riser row unit can see up to three days’ earlier emergence and a six to seven percent Net Effective Stand advantage. That advantage increases to 10 percent when planting speeds reach eight miles per hour.

PRECISION PLANTING KITS: KEY FEATURES

Designed based on sound agronomic principles, the Early Riser row unit and Advanced Seed meter designs have led the industry in providing accurate and consistent depth control, good seed-topsoil contact, uniform soil pressure to the seed and in-row spacing accuracy. That means better stands, more uniform emergence, accurate populations, and in the end, higher yields.

Available Precision Planting kits include 20/20 SeedSense® Planting Monitor, vSet Meter™ Elect Drive System, DeltaForce® Hydraulic Active DownForce Control and CleanSweep™ Dual-Action Air Cylinder. Contact your local Case IH dealer to learn more.
