The Case IH Precision Disk™ 500T single disk air drill features unmatched maneuverability for high-efficiency seeding.

Enhancements for 2018 help ensure the Case IH air seeding product line continues to lead the industry in productivity and agronomics.

“Seeding equipment steadily grows in popularity,” said Trent Nowosad, Case IH marketing manager for seeding equipment. “When it comes to meeting cropping challenges with maximum flexibility, seeding provides the versatility that allows producers to quickly react to changes in crop selection. Our goal is to constantly offer improvements that help producers achieve high-efficiency seeding.”

Greater convenience and durability

The Case IH Precision Disk 500T single disk air drill features an on-board mounted 70- or 100-bushel tank with seed metering, four-section overlap control and unmatched maneuverability. New for 2018, producers can add tank-mounted weigh scales. Tank weighs are accessible through the Case IH Advanced Farming Systems AFS Pro 700 display or other compatible displays. A display on the rear tank platform also provides on-the-go weight readouts.

“More and more, producers rely on a diverse crop mix — from wheat and other cereal grains to specialty crops and soybeans. And then, there’s the rapidly growing interest in cover crops,” Nowosad said. “Access to accurate real-time tank weighs are critical to help monitor seeding rates.”
