At the National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention in Kansas City last week I spoke once again with Laura Robson, Senior Marketing Manager, John Deere. This is actually a picture of Laura from Commodity Classic earlier this year.
I asked Laura what Deere is doing in the precision area that will help farmers who are still trying to get their corn out of the field since it has been a wet, late season for so many in the midwest. She says that producers might want to look at Auto Trac Row Sense. It uses mechanical feelers on the corn head in conjunction with automatic guidance to guide the head precisely down the row. She says this is especially useful for down corn which has been a problem in areas hard hit recently by high winds.
