I think every farmer breathes a sigh of relief when they see their crops emerging. The worrying is far from over, but at least the growing season is off to a good start.
We put auto-steer in the planter tractor this year. Looks like it worked.....the rows are straight.
Now we just wait for warm weather and an occasional rain shower to nurture our new little corn plants past the plumule stage (which should be in just a few days.) It is fun to watch the daily changes to the corn fields. The plants can change dramatically just overnight.
As our crops are growing, so is the evolution of our farming equipment. We put auto-steer in one tractor and another tractor moved on to make room for the new addition. The MXU125 got traded in for a MX140. Even though I have not had the pleasure of driving it yet, JM says it is AWESOME!
