Seeding Results

If you would like to see something in particular, please let us know as I have only posted a small number of pictures.  OR, if you would like to go and see some of the ground that we seeded, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you.  I tried getting some video of the drill in action, but had some difficulties getting good video.  I will work on that again this spring.

I'll continue to go thru my 2014 & 2015 pictures and video's and see if I have any other photo's/video's to post.


2015

My Quad Trac needed some major repairs towards the end of Spring work 2015.  I got the opportunity to use a Versatile Delta Track to pull my drill.

While, many will say this was a dry year for us here on the Palouse.  According to my weather stations, it was not drier than normal, just hotter earlier and longer.  Thus, it stressed our crops at the wrong times and reduced quality and yield.

   
 

 

Interesting conditions this fall in some locations....

 

While seeding out near Hooper, there was a windstorm
and the dirt drifted like snow. 


While this picture of the Russian thistles I could seed thru,
there were other areas of the field that it just wanted to plug.
So, while I typically recommend that you do not mow, this field
ended up being mowed.  Chemical control of weeds this year, was
very poor across a large area of Eastern Washington,
due to weather issues.

One of the many reasons I like my GPS.

 

I was winged up and parked for the night.  I like this photo, as it just shows you how big those wind turbines are.

I took these, just because everyone takes pictures of canola fields.

Its hard to take a good picture of yourself, but I was trying to capture how tall the Winter Canola was.

 

Winter Canola seeded last June, on 30 inch spacing.

 

Winter Canola, seeded last June in near Dusty.  My finger is trying to show the size of the stocks.  This picture was taken June 7, 2012.

 

Winter Canola, the canola plants have put on lots of pods and are filling nicely.  This picture was taken June 7, 2012.

 

Winter Wheat in the foreground, and a lentil field in the back ground.

 

Lentil field, seeded into last years prevented planting ground (that is why there is not much residue).

 

This is the DNS that is shown earlier this spring, with Ducks on the field.

 

Same field is on the left.

 

Spring Wheat, this is the field that is shown being seeded below.

Barley Seeded in a two pass system.  Fertilizer shanked in, then seeded with JD 455 - looks fairly good except for some thin spots. (top-right was seeded with Cross Slot in one pass.

Barley seeded with the Cross Slot at the same time as the barley was seeded with the two pass system.
