The Kverneland isobus-equipped i-Plough won a LAMMA Show innovation award for the best new product or innovation in the mechanical crop equipment category.
Kverneland say the i-Plough represents the future of ploughing, and uses isobus to make life easier for operators to input plough settings and depth requirements from the cab.
“This is the smart way for every operator to achieve – and maintain – perfect furrows every time,” says Adam Burt, Kverneland product manager.
“And the introduction of i-Plough has finally taken the guesswork out of plough settings.”
There are four modes for the i-Plough – transport, work, park and mark. Changing between modes is done on the touchscreen IsoMatch Tellus terminal, which sees the plough automatically configure itself to suit the mode selected.
Such innovation will give less experienced operators more confidence to deliver better ploughing, which in turn will lead to improved agronomy.
“To be presented with such an award is recognition of how technology can deliver more efficiency, with any implement,” says Adam.
