  • Would it be possible for you to post a picture in one of your videos that shows a airel photo of your farm, so we can see the massiveness of what you own and farm? I know you talk about 3000acres, 4000acres that, but being from the east coast mountains, I can't even picture how big that is. Be safe!

  • Do your pumps diaphragms go out fairly quickly with all the roundup you spray. Our boom sprayer and hose real sprayer go through rebuild kits once a year due to roundup.

  • Could you / anyone explain “Chem fallow” to me? I get that it’s land left to fallow but why Chem fallow?

    Ben PattinsonBen Pattinson4 months ago
    • @Ben Pattinson I should have mentioned that we have cut our chem fallow acres 50% with recroping peas

      Robert WelkerRobert Welker4 months ago
    • Robert Welker thanks for educating me on that. I thought it must be something like that. Is there any benefit to putting some sort of cover crop in the fallow land to help soil biology? Roots in the soil, keep the soil covered etc. Something deep rooting that would help the following crop draw moisture up from the deeper soil??

  • I wonder why they installed a sight glass that you can't see the product, and have electronic counters. Seems a useless item and an additional hole in the tank.

    Brad TaylorBrad Taylor4 months ago
    • I honestly suspect that someone just forgot to the put the float in it during assembly. And given the digital readouts and calibrated loads they do to calibrate the monitors no one noticed. Or it's stuck down at the bend which also happens from time to time.

      CragifiedCragified4 months ago
  • Nick, put on some gloves when connecting and disconnecting the chemical line from the sprayer. You are dealing with highly concentrated product that is readily asorbable through the skin. Is there a possibility to install float tires on the sprayer like the Bud has? It will lower the ground contact pressure lessening the damage to the field and your crop? Rain is a good thing in moderation. You guys don't have a lot of rain, farmers in the Carolina's and Virginia are receiving record amounts of rain causing flooding of fields and washing away the recent planting. Even after the waters recede, the damage has been done. Anyhow, enjoy your Independence Day with family and friends.

  • We finished wheat still to take 2500 bushels to elevator and put part in the seed bin. The last day was a bugger! Never a day like this in 60 years. We has the alternator quit in the combine...getting to it is not so simple. We had a tire go bad going 18 miles to elevator that was still taking wheat before closing early for 4th of July. I got ready to dump 300 bu and found the grain tank empty. After looking for a while, found the grain auger pan under the sieve fell off. Took a while to find it under the straw. It fell off on the end of the pass before the last dump. We bought this combine used and someone didn't tighten the 5 bolts holding the pan on. Hope your last day of harvest will go better. On Our first day the engine drive damper stripped out..the engine had to be taken out.

  • Mentioned the dew on crop when spraying the best way been told to test it is get the wetter or adjuvant using and spray it with a hand bottle and watch to see if it makes the dew run off creating a rain event in the crop canopy, If dew doesn’t run off like rain go get her done
