RACINE, Wis.-Case IH announces the new Case IH Patriot 4430 sprayer has been selected as the 2011 CropLife IRON Product of the Year. The award was recently announced at the Agricultural Retailers Association Conference and Exposition in Boca Raton, Fla.
"We are pleased that the industry recognizes the benefits the Case IH Patriot 4430 sprayer can bring to retailers, custom applicators and producers, helping them improve their efficiency, cover more acres with better accuracy and use less fuel," says Ken Lehmann, Case IH Application Equipment Sales and Marketing Manager.
Any agricultural equipment introduced during the calendar year can be nominated for the CropLife IRON Product of the Year award. The publication's staff selects the five finalists from nominations submitted by email from their readers and comments made at trade shows and events, such as the Midwest AG Industries Exposition, Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days. The Product of the Year winner is then determined based upon a month of online voting on the CropLife website and Facebook page.
"The Product of the Year is similar to a People's Choice award," says Eric Sfiligoj, editor of CropLife IRON. "The Case IH Patriot 4430 sprayer received more than half of all votes received, making it the clear choice for this honor."
