Racine, Wis. — Case IH is expanding the capabilities of the Early Riser planter lineup for spring 2019. New layers of high-definition (HD) data are now available with 2000 series Early Riser planters through The Climate Corporation FieldView Cab app with FieldView Drive technology. The new setup option removes the need to purchase a display exclusively for FieldView and allows for row-by-row data visualization, mapping, autoguidance line sharing and more. It is available today for producers who operate a 2000 series Early Riser planter paired with a Case IH tractor that is equipped with Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) AccuGuide autoguidance (NavII/III controller, AFS 372 receiver and AFS Pro 700 display).

“Early Riser planters already offer a rugged row unit and industry-leading planting accuracy — now we’re adding another mapping technology option that meets the high-tech needs of producers,” said Tony McClelland, Case IH planter marketing manager. “Producers are always looking for easy planter data visualization tools to help them make informed agronomic decisions. We can now visualize singulation and liquid fertilizer layers directly from the planter to the FieldView Cab app.”

With compatible equipment and a FieldView subscription, all a producer needs to do is plug the FieldView Drive hardware into the Case IH AFS Pro 700 display and start planting. FieldView Drive offers standard map layers for the Case IH 1200 and 2000 series Early Riser planters, with additional map layers available for 2000 series Early Riser planters. Standard map layers include hybrid variety, population and planting speed data. Additional map layers available for the new 2000 series Early Riser planters include singulation, spacing, DeltaForce hydraulic down force, liquid fertilizer and granular chemical layers, making Case IH the first original equipment manufacturer to deliver liquid fertilizer and granular chemical data layers to FieldView. Then, data is automatically stored to the producer’s FieldView cloud account, allowing for easy storage and data management. The additional map layers are compatible with 2000 series Early Riser planters connected to Case IH Steiger, Magnum, Optum and Puma series tractors that are equipped with AccuGuide. 

“This is a great solution for producers looking to maximize time in the field by optimizing row-by-row planter settings and then making more informed decisions throughout the rest of the growing season,” said McClelland.

In addition to HD mapping, FieldView also enables autoguidance line sharing between multiple Case IH tractors that are fully equipped with AFS AccuGuide (NavII/III controller, AFS 372 receiver and AFS Pro 700 display). Producers can use the FieldView Drive and their corresponding FieldView subscription to share straight A/B and heading guidance lines.

HD mapping is accessible on any iPad with The Climate Corporation FieldView app. No additional display is required. The technology is compatible with all Early Riser planters.
