New Holland has launched the latest generation of CX8000 elevation conventional combines. The combines deliver unmatched straw quality and the cleanest grain sample for large-scale farmers and custom harvesters. The Opti-Fan system, standard on both the CX8080 and CX8090 models, compensates for the impact of up and downhill slopes on harvesting performance. The operator sets the fan speed on level ground and the system automatically adjusts it when the harvester goes up or downhill. The standard Opti-Clean system improves cleaning performance up to 20 percent. The system has been engineered to increase operator comfort and reduce machine vibration. The CX8000 Elevation features Opti-Speed straw walker technology, which delivers up to 10 percent more productivity on slopes. The system automatically varies the straw walker speed based on the field's slope. The operator can select from four pre-sets--wheat, corn, canola and rice--and the Opti-Speed system takes care of the rest. The unloading speed now tops 3.5 bushels a second and 14 percent faster than previous to ensure the largest grain tank is emptied in just over 90 seconds.

New canola hybrid available
Northstar Agri Industries, a subsidiary of PICO Holdings, Inc., Fargo, N.D., and the first purpose-built canola processing facility in the United States, and Bayer CropScience, the innovators of InVigor canola seed, have announced the addition of the InVigor L252 hybrid to the Northstar Star Growers’ high oil contract.

Recently launched for the 2014 growing season, L252 is the first InVigor hybrid with premium-level oil content. This mid- to full-maturing hybrid offers early-season vigor, outstanding yield and the highest rating for blackleg resistance. L252 features the LibertyLink trait, which gives farmers an alternative to glyphosate-tolerant systems and a tool to fight herbicide resistance.
