Case IH – Advanced Farming Systems | AFS
INTEGRATED PRECISION – READY FOR THE FUTURE
Case IH Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) have been at the forefront of precision farming for more than a decade, giving farmers the ability to control the entire crop production cycle. Case IH AFS™ tools include everything you need to achieve repeatable accuracy down to 2.5cm, reduce overlaps and cut input costs — and maximise your yield potential.
CHOOSE THE LEVEL OF ACCURACY THAT BEST FITS YOUR OPERATION
Fitting a GPS antenna to your machinery opens up Advanced Farming Systems capability to include guidance, automatic steering, sprayer boom control, yield mapping and much more. While satellite navigation in a car typically has a positioning accuracy of about 5,5 yards, Case IH AFS® equipment can achieve pass-to-pass accuracy levels down to 1 inch.
INTERACTIVE – INTEGRATED – INTUITIVE
Whether you take delivery of your new Case IH tractor or combine with factory-installed AFS®, or retrofit an AFS® solution to your existing equipment, the AFS Pro monitor touchscreen puts key functions at your fingertips. At Case IH we only use touch screens because we know you demand a no compromise fully portable approach in your operations.
Guidance and Steering
BE ACCURATE, EFFICIENT & PRODUCTIVE WITH AFS ACCUGUIDE™ & AFS ROW GUIDE
Advance your operation with Case IH steering and guidance tools like AFS AccuGuide™ for tractors and combines. Achieve year-to-year repeatable accuracy from 20cm down to 2.5cm. By adopting autoguidance, you will reduce skips and overlaps, save on fuel and labour costs, better manage your seed, fertilizer and chemical inputs, simplify operation and even add hours to the day during critical operating windows. AFS RowGuide™ works with AFS AccuGuide™ to provide accurate, hands-off steering during corn harvest to reduce operator fatigue during long harvest hours.
AFS COMPONENTS ENSURE UPTIME & PRODUCTIVITY
The opportunities and challenges impacting agriculture today and into the next decades mean we’re farming in ways our grandfathers never imagined. Innovative precision farming technologies, like the Case IH AFS 372 GNSS receiver and DCM-300 modem, are examples of how Case IH delivers intuitive technology and ensures maximum uptime. Case IH is committed to delivering the technology you need, now and in the future, to improve productivity across your entire operation.
Case IH AFS Connect™ uses a combination of global positioning system and cellular technology to send and receive machine, agronomics and job-site information. For busy managers, telematics can help you improve productivity with up-to-the-minute management of resources and labour. Case IH expertise and local support keep your AFS technology working smoothly so you can maximize your return on investment.
AFS® DESKTOP SOFTWARE FOR INFORMATION MANAGEMENT AND APPLICATION CONTROL
Designed to fit your operation’s needs, Case IH AFS® desktop software offers the flexibility and analysis power to support all your precision farming needs. Generate yield maps, as-applied maps, prescription maps and more from a single, integrated software package. Plus, create soil sampling maps, create and print reports and import satellite imagery. No matter your data source – the AFS Pro 700 monitor, your crop consultant, or an ag retailer or other supplier – you can easily import and manage the data using your AFS desktop software. The software supports all of the major precision farming systems on the market, including Trimble, Ag Leader and GreenStar.
Make life easier for you and you operators by using just one AFS™ touchscreen monitor to control all ISOBUS-compatible implements. As the more complex implements and steering mechanisms often require an ISOBUS joystick, our vehicles are pre-wired and ready to “plug and play”. This enables you to deliberately and easily assign, store, select and use the functions of remote valves and implements according to their modes of operation.
