1200 Series Early Riser Planters

Maximize Yield Potential.

The CASE IH 1200 Series Early Riser Planters sets the industry benchmark for consistency in row spacing and plant population accuracy. Engineered to deliver uniformity, the Early Riser Planters allow for versatility in rugged conditions and produce higher yields on average.

Maximize Yield Potential

The 1200 Series Early Riser Planters ensures excellent seed-to-soil contact and uniformity with consistent depth control and accuracy across the planter. Side-by-side trials show Early Riser Planters produce 6% more plants on average 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.

SEED DELIVERY – Versatility in Changing Conditions

Regardless of your speed, seed size or field condition, the Case IH Advanced Seed Meter (ASM) is equipped for the job.

BULK FILL SYSTEM – Handles Any Seed, Any Coating

We spent hundreds of hours in field testing, with all types of seed combinations, to provide you with the best in seed delivery.

ADVANCED FARMING SYSTEMS (AFS) – Putting Technology to Work For You

Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) from Case IH help you reduce overlaps and skips, manage inputs by prescription, as well as monitor planter performance, all from one display.


Case IH has partnered with Precision Planting to offer technologically advanced options – equipping planters with select components, all on the same toolbar, to control residue management, seed placement ​and down-force control row by row.

MAINTENANCE & UPTIME – Simplified Adjustments & Less Daily Maintenance

Case IH Early Riser planters are built strong to work as hard as you do, all day long and over multiple planting seasons. And they’re designed to be nimble and flexible, with fewer and easier adjustments and less daily maintenance. New features, like our AccuDrive cable seed meter drive system and redesigned bulk fill system with improved seed handling capabilities, bring more uptime, reliability and agronomic benefit than ever before.
