Agriculture Investment

According to records by the South African Agricultural Machinery Association (SAAMA) that stated that for the period 1 January to 28 February 2019, tractor sales of 914 units and combine harvester sales of 19 units were respectively 20,5% and 34,5% lower than the 1 150 tractors and 29 combine harvesters sold over the same period in 2018. The news figures will be available soon. 

Case IH unveiled new Magnum tractors powered by the company’s Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) precision technology at the 2019 National Farm Machinery Show. A new display, operating system, and receiver improve the technology package, and the tractor features a completely redesigned cab.

The march of technology appears relentless in agriculture. But it’s also sometimes gradual, waiting for that trigger issue or event to drive new tools from research facility to farm. At the 2016 Farm Progress Show Case IH shared a vision for the autonomous tractor, turning the Magnum into a cab-free wonder that got a lot of attention.

As stewards of the land, farmers strive to maintain healthy structure season after season, all while maintaining profitability for their operation. The Great Plains ‘True Vertical Tillage’ concept provides a system-based approach that focuses on soil health – working the soil vertically to avoid the creation of compaction layers.
