Case IH announced that, through its local distributor Northmec, it has begun delivering the first units of a fleet of 138 tractors and four sprayers to joint farming operators Pieter Van Zyl, PG Van Zyl and Dirk Fourie in South Africa.

The customers jointly farm 18,000 hectares (approximately 45,000 acres) much of it corn in Western Transvaal, in the northwest province of South Africa. The new machines will renew and expand the Van Zyls’ and Fourie's fleet of Case IH equipment, which also includes combine harvesters, Case IH was proud to announce.

It is not common that any company announces a one-farming operation delivery of any product in this amount, whether measured in dollars or amount of product.
