Case IH has received a host of prizes for a number of its technologies at an awards ceremony in Italy.
In total, four technologies developed by the company were recognized at the Fieragricola 2018 trade show in Verona.
The firm was awarded two Foglia d’Oro (Golden Innovation) awards, one each for its automated headland turning system and its semi-powershift transmission.
The AccuTurn system takes control of the steering on headlands to guide the tractor accurately into the next chosen path, improving driver comfort by performing the repetitive task without operator input.
Case IH’s Maxxum Multicontroller tractor range offers between 116hp and 145hp of power and has been recognized for its high fuel-efficiency.
Two silver prizes were also handed out for its Quadtrac CVX articulated tractor and its adaptive steering control system.
Peter Friis, Case IH commercial marketing director for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, stated, “Farmers throughout the world increasingly understand the benefits that new technical developments bring to their businesses in terms of enhancing productivity, improving operator comfort and reducing costs, together with the advanced technology incorporated into the latest Case IH products.
“All of us within the company are therefore delighted that these new technologies have been recognized through such prestigious awards.”
