It was a busy day at the Follow Farming field.  Local farmer, Mike Smith, tilled the ground preparing it for soybean planting.  Watch the videos below for:

  • An introduction about Field Tillage — What the farmer does and why they work the ground up.
  • Watch the tractor at work — See how the tractor moves, turns, and makes a little dust.
  • Notice the difference between Non-tilled vs. Tilled ground — Look up close how the dirt and weeds are different. 
  • Check out the tractor — Hear a quick explanation of the tractor, cultivator, and clumbler.
