Case IH equipment sets record for highest sugarcane harvest

DSC 4155Case IH, a brand of CNH Industrial, recently helped the Indian sugar factory, Krishna Sugars, win the ‘National Record’ award by harvesting 146 mt sugarcane in just 3.5 hours with the Case IH Austoft 4000 Series sugarcane harvester

In India, the 4000 Series has been performing well with 100 to 150 tonnes per day on average, with hourly average of 15 to 20 tonnes. However, Krishna Sugars have created a new record in the country reaching the best harvesting performance with 41 tonnes per hour.

An award ceremony was organised at Krishna Sugars’ premises in Athani, Belgaum district in Karnataka to celebrate this achievement. During the event, Ramesh Kumar, head of crop solutions service at CNH Industrial, praised the operators of sugarcane harvester and in-fielders for their untiring efforts in this remarkable feat.

“The Case IH Austoft 4000 sugarcane harvester is a fantastic piece of machinery. It cuts with precision and speed, which directly increases the output and reduces trash content, thereby providing more profit to the farmers and more output for sugar mills. This harvester is extremely fuel efficient for the kind of work it does, providing unmatched quality and reliability. We are striving to make available more machines for our customers very soon”, Parappa C Savadi said.

The Case IH Austoft 4000 Series was first launched in India in 2010. Specifically designed for small to medium sized operations or for bigger plantations with reduced row spacing, it suits the Indian land conditions perfectly.

Case IH currently assembles its sugarcane harvesters in Chakan, Pune. The assembly site is built on the lines of Case IH’s international facilities and global standards, and it operates also an R&D centre.
