Planting Day – See the Soybeans Go in the Soil June 8, 2011

Posted by jprettyman99 in Uncategorized.

After a spring of extremely wet weather, planting day has finally arrived.  The soil has been prepared and our local farmer, Nathan Smith, is planting soybeans.  Take a look…

  • A High Tech Ride Inside the Tractor Cab — Ride along inside the tractor cab.  See what it looks like outside the front window. Get a bird’s eye view of the soybean air seeder.  And hear Nathan explain the technology which helps him be more efficient.
  • Watch the Tractor and Planter Work Across the Field
  • Ran Out of Seed — A reality for every farmer.  The air seeder is runs out of soybeans and it is time to refill.
  • Getting More Soybean Seed — Take a look at the hopper used to transport the seed from Morral Companies back to the field.  Again, an efficient way for farmers to quickly transport seed and get back to planting crops.
  • Filling the Planter — Back in the field, our local farmer will fill the planter so that he can get started planting again.
  • Back to Planting — We are putting soybean seeds in the prepared ground.  The prepared soil bed looks great.  There is good moisture in the ground.  With a little patience, our soybeans should be sprouting in 5-7 days.
