Case IH Announces Updates for AFS Connect Farm Platform

New robust features of the AFS ConnectFarm web platform and mobile app make managing and monitoring an operation easier than ever

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. The latest update includes support for prescriptions and large square balers; new layer visualizations; machine utilization maps; and more. 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. 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.”

said Leo Bose, Case IH AFS marketing manager lead.

Current, as well as historical, crop and yield data for each field is just a few taps away.

Highlights from the March 2021 AFS Connect Farm update include:

Enhanced Mobile App User Interface
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.

In-depth bale data is easy to view with AFS Connect.

Prescription Creation
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.

Large Square Baler Support
Users of large square balers will now see data import and display activity layers in AFS Connect Farm. Additionally, users can now select the specific bale drop location. Once selected, a pin will show the location of each bale within the field. The user can view individual bales and specific details by clicking on the pin for the given bale. Displayed information for each bale includes wet/dry weight, moisture percentage, density, capacity, and flakes per bale.
