AGXTEND range of advanced farming products from Case IH includes new and exclusive technologies aimed at increasing productivity and efficiency, which provide measurable benefits throughout the year. AGXTEND series products complement and significantly expand the current offering of Case IH advanced farming systems (AFS), which will ultimately include a full range of interconnected solutions and services.

SoilXplorer, an AGXTEND series product, was honored by the Jury of the Kielce Trade Fair Gold Medal Competition. The recognition of AGXTEND SoilXplorer was the result of the following features: functional properties, performance parameters, ergonomics and safety, efficiency of use and energy consumption, quality and design aesthetics, impact on the natural environment. 

SoilXplorer is a non-contact sensor that uses electromagnetic signals to measure soil conductivity at four depths: 0-25 cm, 15-60 cm, 55-95 cm and 85-115 cm. It can be fitted on the front three-point linkage of the tractor. On one hand, it can be used to create field maps, record soil cohesion and prepare soil and moisture levels maps, and on the other hand, to provide information on the occurrence of soil compaction zones and their depth, which allows cultivation work at different depths of soil with the use of appropriate tools . Full depth operation only in those places of the field, where it is necessary, saves fuel and reduces the consumption of metal parts, which translates into significant savings.

The organizer of the competition is Targi Kielce S.A. and the Institute of Technology and Life Sciences, Warsaw branch. The Gold Medals of Targi Kielce S.A. were awarded during the opening ceremony of the 25th International Agricultural Fair AGROTECH on March 15, 2019.
