    Ummmmmmmmmm- about that first picture titled wheat on rolling pasture ground- in this area- if we describe a farm as rolling- it always has sum hills on it. Where are the hills?

    Nice lookin' crops.

    Well db , I consider us good friends ! And good friends tell it like it is , right ? Well here goes.
    Pic. 1 of the wheat . looks alittle thin in places where water may have set , also looks alittle S m u t t y , one more rain on it and your combine will black as coal , but i think it will still make 30 .

    pic. 2 . why not put a few more wheel tracks in there ?? My god what a mess ! If it don't keep raining the roots will never make threw the compaction !!!!!!!!! BTW if your not doing anything today , why not just drive across the field a couple more times !

    pic 3 , well the sun dog at sun set is pretty !

    pic 4 . I would save my money on fungicides and spray on that small stuff, my god man it's June 14 th and two leafs , can't wait to see that stuff in July when the heat hit's 105 !

    But all in all you did try hard and thats important ! Think you have the underachiver award rapped up , Congrats my friend , Ken

    well you can tell ECI is jealous, what a jerk... I can't believe they didn't let you join the asses hole club. lol

    Not going to spell check this because it always takes a couple hours to get through ECI's just to get to mine.

    MoMo. Wheel Tracks. lmao...that's the turn rows in the corner of the field, and there were alot of point rows. Also, since I didn't have auto steer, sometimes I had to make two or three runs at the end, sort of like a plane doing touch and gos. Kenny, I think that other picture of wheel tracks is where I made a pass through the field withouit putting the marker down, and I had to double back with the planter up and marker down to get my next round. lmao. Obviously, I have some issues with the planter. By July, most of this stuff will be burned to a crisp and I'll be whining about it here....but probably will get a late August rain and it will make a comback to around 220. lmao. I was thinking maybe two fungicide passes so I could make some more wheel tracks, maybe let them use a half rate and double back a couple of times.....maybe they'll leave the floaters on the Hag when they spray....maybe smash down a few late emerging weeds at the same time since I don't have RR corn.l

    As for the rolling wheat ground, that is the only flat spot in the field, I was to fricking lazy to walk to where the hills are., but trust me, there are a couple of places that are steep enough the old 9500 might not have enough power to thresh and take the hill at the same time.
