Agronomic Benefits

  • Agronomic advantages of conventional tillage with the conservation and cost benefits of no-till.
  • Improve soil tilth by allowing air and water to move freely throughout the soil.
  • Manage crop residue to reduce erosion and maintain soil moisture.
  • Promote soil drying and warming for earlier planting dates and faster germination.
  • Create the ideal planting zone for accurate seed placement and optimal seed-to-soil contact.

Fertilizer Efficiency

  • Place fertilizer directly in the root zone for maximum nutrient uptake and more effective stewardship.
  • Deliver nutrients precisely when and where your growing crop needs them.
  • Case IH is a proud partner of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship. The Nutri-Tiller allows you to apply at the right source, rate, time and place to improve production while minimizing environmental impact.


Resource Management

  • One pass reduces fuel, labor and production costs.
  • Less trips across the field minimizes equipment wear and tear.


A Row Unit Built for Your Success

From the moment the coulter meets that top layer of soil and crop residue until a well-conditioned berm emerges, the objective is to create an ideal environment to get your crop get off to a fast, uniform start. Row unit components work in harmony to create optimal agronomic conditions in a single, high-efficiency pass.

Agronomically Designed

  • Large, 24-inch coulter successfully cuts through tough residue.
  • Independent mounting and a set-screw design lock in depth settings.
  • Down-pressure spring provides reliable penetration for consistent fertilizer placement.


A Coulter That Makes the Cut

  • Large, 24-inch coulter successfully cuts through tough residue.
  • Independent mounting and a set-screw design lock in depth settings.
  • Down-pressure spring provides reliable penetration for consistent fertilizer placement.


Clearing the Way for Successful Crop Residue Management

  • Row cleaner effectively moves high levels of residue without gouging or riding above residue.
  • Two adjustable down-pressure spring settings help match row cleaner aggressiveness to field conditions.
  • Ability to float or stow row cleaners above the soil surface for lighter residue levels, such as soybean stubble.


Shank Delivers Accuracy and Durability

  • High-clearance Shank for Strip-Till (HCS ST) maintains a constant tillable depth for accurate nutrient placement — even in rocky soils.
  • A 1 ¼-inch by 2-inch edge-bent shank, combined with an improved mounting design, ensure the knife and shank stay aligned for pass-to-pass accuracy.
  • Knife adapter shifts the shear point from the knife-mount bolts to the knife adapter, greatly reducing shear bolt or knife breakage.


Building the Best Berm

  • Berm Build’r™ creates uniform berms that are properly shaped and sized, while increasing pore space for improved soil tilth.
  • Die plates mounted to the HCS ST ensure that the disks remain in position relative to the shank, always catching and containing the soil and shaping the berm.
  • Concave, 18-inch notched sealing disks feature holes on the disk face to reduce moist soil buildup.
  • Optional, concave 18-inch unsharpened disks without holes are available for less aggressive tillage.


Finishing the Berm

  • Berm Condition’r™ breaks down and sizes clods, providing a uniform seedbed for optimal germination and uniform emergence.
  • Large, 14-inch rolling baskets catch soil flowing out of the Berm Build’r and keep it within the tilled area.
  • At the same time, rolling baskets smooth berm tops and finalize the seedbed before planting.
  • Two basket options are suited for different goals and seasons:
    • Two basket options are suited for different goals and seasons:
    • Best for spring: flat-bar design provides greater clod fracturing and sizing, and helps settle soil for the tighter spring planting window.


Flexibility and Durability Drive Consistency

Durability, adjustability and flexibility each play a critical role in any tillage equipment’s success. When it comes to strip-till implements, expectations are high, and rightfully so — you have one pass to get it right. We designed the frame to help ensure the Nutri-Tiller exceeds expectations.

Sized to Suit Your Operation

  • The Nutri-Tiller 955 is available in 8-, 12-, 16-, and 24-row working widths (30-inch row spacing).
  • When in field mode, the toolbar on the 12- and 16-row models flex in three sections — and the 24-row model flexes in five sections — for excellent ground-following.


Easy Adjustments

  • Single-point depth control allows for quick adjustments in changing fields and conditions.
  • Independently adjusted leveling control for inner wing gauge wheels provides simplicity and durability.
  • 24-row unit includes a turnbuckle for front-to-back toolbar leveling.


Tire Options

  • Walking tandems on the mainframe and wings with standard FI tires provide a smooth ride, reduce compaction and keep row units riding at a consistent depth.
  • Optional: New, stubble-resistant VF radial tire option provides a larger footprint for improved floatation and further reduced compaction.
  • VF radial tires offer greater durability in the field and during transport.



  • Steel, welded bridge construction results in a stronger frame.
  • Rounded gussets provide increased toolbar strength.
  • Three ranks of tubing add strength, stability, and flexibility for improved crop residue flow and faster operating speeds.


Strong Hitches; Tight turns

  • Durable front and rear hitches are aligned for even weight transfer and reduced lateral stress.
  • Constant level rear hitch features a reliable hitch casting, which swings and extends for easier tank hitching.
  • Replaceable poly wear pads on support and contact points ease hitch movement.
  • Larger, heavier hitch casting allows for towing capacity up to 25,000 pounds.


Easy Folding

Folding and unfolding is simple for easier, safer transport:

  • Single-fold units: 8-and 12-row models feature two folding sections.
  • Double-fold unit: 16-row model features four folding sections.
  • Triple-fold unit: 24-row model features six folding sections.
  • On 16- and 24-row units, a gravitational lock automatically moves into place and secures the outer wing for worry-free transport.

Field-ready to Deep Band Dry Fertilizer

Take the next step toward high-efficiency crop production by pairing the Nutri-Tiller 955 with the Case IH Precision Air 5 series air cart. This option allows you to deep-band dry fertilizer so it’s available precisely when and where your growing crop needs it. With this air package, you can apply up to three products in one pass: two dry fertilizers, plus anhydrous ammonia.

  • Easy-to-fasten, over center latches provide easy coupling and a consistent, secure connection.
  • Dimpled Y-splitters agitate air and product flow, providing a consistent mix for delivery down to the knife.
  • Diffusers above the knife help the product drop freely to the trench floor to provide a consistent fertilizer band at the proper depth.
  • An optional blockage monitor provides feedback via ISOBUS to the AFS Pro 700.
