Maximize Yield Potential
At Case IH, we make every seed count. Through sound agronomic design, Case IH Early Riser Planters set the industry benchmark for consistent in row spacing and plant population accuracy. Now, our latest planters go beyond picket fence stands – uniform spacing between plants – to deliver photocopy plants.​



  • Engineered to deliver uniformity of plants same size, height, and thickness of plants the entire growing season
  • Applies uniform correct soil pressure all around the seed



  • Ensures good seed-to-soil contact
  • Provides accurate and consistent depth control across the planter


Higher Yields
Side-by-side trials show Early Riser Planters produce on average 6% more plants above the competition


Row Unit

Make the Most of Short Seasons
The legendary Case IH Early Riser Planter row unit was designed with agronomics in mind so you can make the most of short planting windows. Our many patented features mean accurate in-row spacing, excellent soil-to-seed contact, and earlier, uniform emergence.


Clean Seed Trench

  • Leading Edge Offset Openers: slice through residue and hard soil.
  • Furrow Forming Point: forms the clean V-shaped seed trench
  • Seed Protection Shoe: acts as a retaining wall, preventing loose soil from falling into the trench before seed.

Careful Soil Handling

  • Reduced Inner Diameter Gauge Wheel Tires: allow displaced soil to move up and out to the sides of the trench for less sidewall compaction.
  • Better Gauge Wheel Weight Distribution: carries the row unit/planter weight away from the edge of the seed trench wall to avoid compression at the base of the trench for more robust roots and plants.
  • Inverted Furrow Closing Disks: replaces soil from both sides so moist soil covers the seed, improving seed-to-soil contact and proper soil pressure.
