With recent rains giving the cotton industry a much-needed boost, Case IH anticipates more demand from cotton growers for technology that helps improve crop management.  

To maximise success, it’s essential for a cotton grower to know every inch of their paddocks, according to Case IH Hay and Harvest Brand Manager, Geoff Rendell.  

“Case IH’s Cotton Express cotton pickers and Module Express 625 provide on-the-go yield and moisture monitoring from inside the cab with the AFS Pro 600 monitor,” said Geoff. “This information can be viewed on your home computer using Case IH desktop software and can show you precisely where in the paddock you had variations in the yield and moisture content of your cotton. Once you know that, you can better appraise your paddocks and enlist the help of an agronomist if necessary to do soil testing or other investigations to ascertain what caused the variability.  

“The AFS Pro 600 monitor also lets the operator mark things like weed infestations. This also shows up in the analysis so you know exactly where the weeds are and can eradicate them simply and effectively. Cotton growers who make the most of this information are likely to become more successful over time as they systematically improve the quality of their paddocks.”  

Geoff says efficiency will be the goal of most cotton growers in the season ahead.  

“Now that conditions have improved for cotton growers, we expect to see a lot more activity in the industry. One of the challenges for growers will be keeping labour costs down while still taking advantage of the favourable conditions,” said Geoff. “Case IH’s cotton pickers increase harvest efficiency by picking from both sides of the plant, while the Module Express not only picks from both sides of the plant but also builds perfect modules in one action. This sort of efficiency reduces labour and fuel costs and allows growers to manage their cotton crop single-handedly.”
