More Decision-Making Tools From Case IH
Case IH announces the first major update of 2021 for the AFS Connect Farm desktop platform and mobile app, giving producers even more power and flexibility to manage their operation anytime, anywhere. From the fast, easy-to-use interface to advanced full-farm data visualization and overlaid geospatial boundaries, AFS Connect Farm provides users with a continually expanding feature set designed to optimize performance, productivity and flexibility at no cost to them.
“As producers take to the field this spring, we’re excited to give them a refined AFS Connect experience and even more decision-making tools to help them increase efficiency and turn potential into profit,” says Leo Bose, Case IH AFS marketing manager lead. “AFS Connect gives users instant access to their operation, helping them manage the farm from a remote location and make smart decisions using real-time and historical data.”
With the latest update to the AFS Connect Farm app, users have access to a wealth of field information when they select a map from the main map screen. With just a few taps, users can now view field-specific data, such as activity layers, scouting observations and soil zone data. Field- and vehicle-specific data is more accessible than ever, with complete field and vehicle lists visible alongside the map. This allows users to switch between a map screen, a field list and a vehicle list quickly and efficiently.
Maximize the potential of AFS Soil Command with the all-new prescription creation tool. This will allow equipment settings to be customized to match conditions in different areas of the field while on the go. Producers can save fuel, conserve soil and appropriately tailor machine agronomic output throughout the field to the crop. Users can also create prescription files for variable depth or downforce on Case IH tillage tools equipped with AFS Soil Command.
