Part of the appeal of precision agriculture is that it’s not an all-or-nothing proposition, according to Case IH AFS Brand Manager, Ross Johansson.

“You can start with the equipment that comes standard in your tractor, harvester or sprayer and see results straight away,” said Ross. “Depending on what you want to achieve – whether it be controlled traffic, yield mapping, prescription seeding/fertilising or much more – your upfront investment doesn’t have to cost the earth.”

A key precision Ag tool is an in-cab display that allows users to monitor and control the vehicle’s functions.

First released in 2006, the Case IH AFS Pro 600 touch screen was a step forward in precision agriculture technology. Since then, it has been included as standard on the Axial-Flow combine and Patriot Sprayer range and as a factory fit option on the Puma, Magnum and Steiger range of tractors.

In 2011, all Case IH tractors, sprayers and combines will feature the brand new AFS Pro 700 display.

“The new AFS Pro 700 display does everything the previous display could do plus a whole lot more,” said Ross.

Like its predecessor, the new AFS Pro 700 display is a 10.4-inch colour touch screen that can be used to monitor and control Case IH vehicles, guidance systems and implements. Because it is ISO 11783 compliant, it can also monitor and control other ISO 11783 compliant implements and machines.

The AFS Pro 700 can be used across numerous machines, automatically recognising the machine it’s in and adjusting the settings to match those last used in that machine. The touch screen display shows vehicle information and lets you operate the implement and record data to create tools such as yield maps. You can then use those yield maps in the AFS Pro 700 to manage your prescription seeding or fertilising program.

Although the new AFS Pro 700 display is physically smaller and lighter than the previous model, it packs a much bigger punch.

The next-generation AFS Pro 700 will have a similar layout and user interface to the AFS Pro 600, making it very familiar and easy to use for existing customers.

“The AFS Pro 700 computer is the next step in giving you ultimate control over vehicles and implements in one touch screen,” said Ross.
