Case IH Rolls Out New Precision Disk Drills

RACINE, Wis. — Redesigned from the ground up, the Case IH’s new Precision Disk single-disk air drills deliver seed placement accuracy for an array of crops grown in diverse conditions and geographies.

The new offering includes the Precision Disk 500T with an on-board bulk seed tank in 25-, 30- and 40-foot working widths and the Precision Disk 500 in 30- and 40-foot sizes, which are paired with a tow-between or tow-behind air cart.

At the heart of each Precision Disk drill is a new row unit, engineered to help producers achieve more even emergence and improved plant stand establishment when seeding such crops as soybeans, wheat, milo and hybrid rice.

The new design delivers accurate seed placement and depth control across varying soil and tillage conditions, as well as more consistent seed-to-soil contact.

These drills can cover more acres each day with increased field speeds and quicker cycle times when moving from field to field. They also are easily adjustable and require less daily maintenance, allowing more time for seeding during those critical spring or fall seeding windows.

“Our agronomic design cuts through residue, opens a uniform seed trench, accurately delivers the seed, and closes and seals the trench for improved germination and plant-stand establishment,” said Dale Simpson, Case IH seeding marketing manager.
