Yestarday we tested AutoTrac by John Deere. We used the correction signal and it really worked very nice. As you can see, we first ran on every third track. This allowed to turn without going backwards!

Re: stripe farming in Switzerland
So are you going to grow different crops in the different strips or were you just playing around with the technology Biker?

i'm pretty sure he meant that he is doing the whole field, but with the use of GPS he can do every third strip, than once he gets to the other end of the field he goes back does 1 strip beside each strip and than again do the last one to finish it. this way he doesnt have to go back and forward on the headlands while turning around. this way you can keep driving and safe yourself some time and shifting.

*read below his first picture, i'm pretty sure thats what he's saying;-)

Re: stripe farming in Switzerland
Thanks Rony.

I thought he may have meant he was doing strip tillage, I have read about it where different crops are grown in strips within the same field, think it has been done a bit in parts of the USA & other countries too.

hi folks

sorry for beeing so imprecise: yes, in the end we tilled the whole field or as you like to say, we were "just playing around". ;-)

The main advantage was, that the turning was faster. Unfortunately I cannot show you a picture showing the end of the work, but I'm sure you'll believe me, when I tell you, that the stripes matched in the end.

BTW: the next day we have been seeding winter wheat

take care!
