Customizing Planters With The Right Technology For Your Operation

The Early Riser® planter series set the agronomic standard by providing the industry’s only flat-bottom seed trench, leading to earlier, more uniform emergence and higher yields. Building on this legacy, Case IH now gives you the opportunity to work with your Case IH dealer to customize your existing, new or future planter with the right amount of technology to meet your needs.

You can choose from four levels of planter technology, ranging in price, customization and factory-readiness:

1.    The New 2000 series — All-new, rugged row unit features factory-integrated Precision Planting® components.

As the first planter series built with factory-integrated Precision Planting technology, the new 2000 series Early Riser planter allows you to customize your planter — direct from the factory. Designed for today’s seed types, treatments, populations and conditions, the new Early Riser planter is easily customized to your soil types, terrain, fertilizer and chemical application needs, and crop residue management preferences.

The all-new rugged row unit is built with heavy-duty cast components to stand up to high speeds and tough, fast-changing conditions. Additional new features that can be customized from the factory include the Advanced Seed Delivery (ASD) system for the most accurate seed delivery and placement from the meter to the furrow.

First models, including 12-, 16- and 24-row 30-inch front-fold machines, will be available for the 2017 planting season.

2.    Factory deduct lets you customize your planter to your exact specifications on select 1200 series Early Riser models.

Case IH continues to offer you an industry-exclusive deduct on select components for 1200 series Early Riser planter models with Precision Planting technology. Built with less mechanical components, your new planter will arrive at the dealership ready to accept the technology you desire. This includes the vDrive® with vSet® electric meter-drive system for optimal seed placement and accuracy, in-cab adjustable CleanSweep® residue managers and DeltaForce® hydraulic down force for uniform depth across varying soil conditions.

3.    1200 series — Conventional Early Riser planter offers field-proven technology from the meter to the seed trench. 

The Advanced Seed Metering (ASM) technology on the 1200 series Early Riser planter set the industry benchmark for consistent in-row spacing and plant population accuracy. Proven on operations across the country, this system allows you to plant a wide variety of seed types and sizes at high plant populations. The 1200 series features many other Agronomic Design™ advantages, including the two-stage closing system, furrow firming point, seed protection shoe and exclusive pulled gauge wheels. Case IH dealers are offering exceptional deals on these models.

4.    Used equipment — Upgrade early models with the latest Case IH technology.

Through unprecedented discounts and special-interest-waiver programs, you can upgrade select used late-model Early Riser planters through participating Case IH dealerships. If you wish to modify these models with Precision Planting components, your Case IH dealer is uniquely suited to tailor existing models to the level that’s best for their farm.

Planting time will be here before we know it. Now you can Be Ready with the planter that’s perfectly suited to your operation. Talk to your Case IH dealer about how Early Riser planters can help ensure today’s high-powered seed technologies reach your farm’s full potential.
