Take a moment and check out the view!
Lots going on in this photo!
Combines have just cut the wheat, and got the seed from the head of the plant and then the seed goes into the tank of combine! While this is happening all the other parts of the plant are being thrown out into a windrow (if you are planning to bale behind) if not you can cut the wheat and put a chopper on back of combine, where it distributes the remaining parts of the plant all around (no windrows)
The Howton’s have been coming behind combines and baling the windrows(what’s left of the wheat) for straw!
After that,the bales of straw are hauled off and the planter comes back into the field, to plant double crop beans.
I love how mostly all parts of wheat plant are used!
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
