Case IH has introduced an additional model that will be the highest-horsepower tracked row crop tractor on the market, the Rowtrac 500. The model adds 50 more horsepower to the Rowtrac line and introduces a wider track undercarriage, which will accommodate 24-inch and 30-inch tracks, applying even less ground pressure on the soil between rows. The new option will be available on Rowtrac models from 350 horsepower to the new 500 horsepower model. Rowtrac uses a four-track, positive-drive system to minimize ground pressure, reduce compaction, improve traction and simplify transport in row crop situations.

Whether crop production calls for fertilizer, fungicides or insecticides, chemigation has become a cost-effective method of applying the products. Made in Yuma, Colo., Agri-Inject's "Apply Yourself" app is appropriate for a range of industries including agricultural, nursery, turf or green markets. Available for Android and iOS devices, the "Apply Yourself" app is designed to take the complication and guesswork out of selecting and calibrating an injection pump for virtually any type of application. The free app works with all metric and English units and that producers can mix the units of measure. "Apply Yourself" automatically performs conversions to make proper recommendations.

Exapta Solutions, Inc., Salina, Kan., has added two models of Valion Ultra to its lineup of seed-tube guards for John Deere XP, pre-XP and Kinze 2000 planters. The Valion Ultras have tungsten carbide inlays and the entire guard is zinc plated. Valions prevent opener blade flex, the only way of obtaining consistent seed depth in firm soils. Otherwise, blades allowed to flex inward by worn OEM guards result in furrows that are pinched and variable in effective depth. Valions extend no deeper than OEM guards. The new Valion Ultras are available for all Deere planters with XP cast row units, and Deere pre-XP row units (JD 7000 through early 1700 series) and Kinze 2000s. The original Valions' high-chrome castings, without the tungsten inlays, remain in Exapta's product lineup for those planter models. In another product introduction, original-type chrome-alloy Valions for Kinze 3000s are now available but they do not have liquid capability. For more information, call 785-820-8000 or visit www.exapta.com.
Cooperative introduces 2 starter fertilizers
CHS Inc., a St. Paul, Minn.-based farmer-owned cooperative and an energy, grains and foods business, has introduced two liquid starter fertilizers: CHS Aventine Complete, available through CHS Service Centers, and XLR-rate, available nationwide through CHS cooperatives and crop input retailers.
XLR-rate liquid starter fertilizer is a high orthophosphate formulation that delivers early green-up in colder and wet soils, promotes root development for a better stand and strengthens the crop during pre-productive growth stages to overcome disease and adverse growing conditions, according to a company news release.
CHS Aventine Complete contains a broad range of nutrients and chelation technology that prevents micronutrients like iron, copper, zinc and manganese from binding in the soil, which improves seedling health for a good start.
Both XLR-rate and CHS Aventine Complete can be used as a soil or foliar application. Their low-salt formulations make both products seed and plant safe, eliminating the risk of injury or yield loss.
