Case IH  Product Manager for Precision Agriculture, Liam Connolly believes that the vast majority of Australian farmers could dramatically increase their yields and profits through precision agriculture technology.

Liam says that most Australian growers are only using 20% of the information collected via precision ag technology.

He explains that while some farmers might engage the services of an agronomist to assist in the analysis of the precision agricultural data collected during peak times such as seeding or harvest, others struggle to use this wealth of information.

To address this particular issue, Case IH has entered into a partnership with global agricultural services company, SGS to help Australian growers take precision farming to the next level, maximising yields and fertiliser inputs, minimising unnecessary chemical applications and dramatically improving farming efficiency.

Farmers will now have a range of after sales support options to simplify the process of analysing data collected in-field via systems such as the Case IH AFS Pro 700.

According to Liam, the new partnership with SGS will provide growers with professional training and support on Case IH AFS precision farming desktop software, which will enable growers to more effectively use in-field data they’ve gathered for maximum efficiency and productivity.

SGS offers a range of agricultural services from soil and seed testing to feed testing, operating 60 offices and labs around Australia. With 67,000 staff in more than 1,250 offices globally, the partnership will provide Australian growers from beginners to experts with access to a wealth of international experts.

Case IH customers can sign up for a range of options from one day classroom training plus online support to having a support engineer provide one-on-one on-farm training. SGS will also provide a number of specialised training events during the year to be delivered via live online webinar technology.

Additional support packages that contribute to good practice precision farming will also be developed as part of the Case IH-SGS partnership. These services will include agronomical advice for the creation of variable rate applications on fertilisers, sprayers and planters to soil sampling and analysis along with agronomical and analytical services.

Liam concludes by saying that Case IH aims to assist their customers move from basic precision farming to the brave new world of prescription farming.
