Hi Rein. We have awesome dirt! It's organically based, naturally. The result of thousands of years of naturally occurring composting. In the Marsh it's called "muck", but in several locations here you can find lots of "peat". When it's really dry, and we're harvesting carrots, huge chunks of peat come up, and have to be broken up, and thrown back onto the ground. My Deutz, I love it! Quiet, powerful, more user friendly than some other tractors we've had, improved views from inside the cab. The only request I would make of tractor manufacturers is, I wish they would install "shades at the side windows, and rear, not just the front. Often the sun is in my eyes, and I place material in the windows so I can look behind me, and watch the wagon and the conveyor from the combine. Gotta go, almost finished carrot harvest. Have a great day!

Managing Jointing and Non-Jointing Grasses

Grass doesn’t just happen and not all species grow the same way. Understanding how different grass species grow enables producers to make good management decisions that maximize forage production in their hay fields and pastures. Jointing and non-jointing grasses respond differently to cutting, which directly affects productivity and persistence.
