Fendt 1050 Tractor and 36 Row White Planter Walk Around

Precision farming practices including the use of global positioning systems (GPS) and geographic information systems (GIS) are applicable not only to harvesting operations but to other farm mechanization operations including precision application of agrochemicals i.e. applying a pesticide or a crop nutrient where it is required and at the appropriate concentration rather than using blanket coverage.

Precision seeders place single seeds at predetermined intervals in evenly spaced rows to provide an optimum plant population using pretreated seeds suited to mechanical metering under gravity and with high germination and establishment potential. Plants with lesser germination potential or those requiring an earlier growing date (rice, tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce, tobacco) may be transplanted typically in biodegradable containers in which the seedling has been established in greenhouses.

I was recently at Kuhns Equipment in Gibson City Illinois and they were setting up this new Fendt 1050 tractor with LSW tires and White 36 row planter. This unit will soon be in the field.The concept of timeliness recognizes that there is an optimum time to perform certain crop production operations from planting through to harvesting. If one or more of these operations is performed too early or too late, a timeliness penalty is likely to accrue, that is, yield and/or the quality of the crop is diminished, yielding a lower price to the farmer. For example, the ideal time to harvest grain is when the crop is ripe and the moisture is low (see also, Maintaining Working Conditions and Operation of Machinery).

For these reasons (environmental enhancement, sustainability) intensive research and development in renewable fuels (including oilseed oils and alcohols) continues and has lead to a small number of commercial applications in niche markets. The future market for renewable fuel use is difficult to predict but will remain an active issue in the continuing debate on alternative fuels for vehicles including agricultural vehicles. Finally, the use of on-farm generated electricity, as opposed to that purchased from a utility, is discussed below (see also, Agriculture and Autonomous Power Supply).
