Precision MinuteLyle Romaine with American Ag Network recently talked with one of the John Deere/American Soybean Association (ASA) Reach for the Stars contest winners. Colin Dutenhoffer of Aberdeen, S.D. says he is impressed with John Deere’s AutoTrac System.

“I’m able to set a line in my field, punch a button, tell it I want to go from this end to that end,” he says. “I can take my time to watch the planter or whatever machine I’m pulling and not have to worry about missing something.”

Dutenhoffer says the AutoTrac was very helpful in helping him to replant this season.
