I finally got a short video from planting day to upload. Hope this works. If not, I’ll try it again tomorrow. Since it’s in HD, I couldn’t make it too long. I may add a link to my video so you can see more. I’ll have to work on that.
If the video works, it will feature the 24 row Case planter we bought new nearly 2 years ago. This is its second crop. Our farm manager pointed out to me that while the planter normally puts in about 40 acres per hour, the Blank Slate field wouldn’t go that quickly due to three problems.
1. It’s a small, irregularly-shaped field.
2. I have a number of fertility trials that added time switching orifices to accommodate the different rates.
3. Terraces take a lot more time maneuvering around.
I’ll add some more details about the strip trials we are doing in a future blog.
It was a beautiful day for planting and everything went well (other than trying to get this video posted).
