In the Dazzling Light of a Late Winter Day —Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Terry is creating a new portion to one of our fields

Extending the field so it becomes a rectangle—taking away point rows

Point rows are hard to work with.  A point row is a short row that starts at a slant going from long to shorter.

Having all the rows the same length makes for all tractor/combine and human work ever so much better.

  1. Almost every sugar cane paddock here is planted in point rows, although the reason eludes me, except perhaps to maximise the available land. Cane harvesters are much smaller than combines, are on tracks and are very agile, so perhaps cane farmers think it’s worth the extra labour harvesting this format causes.

    • Corn. Terry doesn’t like alfalfa in that field as the field, itself, is hard to water. Corn or beans work the best. Thank you for the compliment. He does work hard at producing it. 🙂
