Out on the Farm 17/31

As a follow-up to yesterday's picture, here's the Horsch Sprinter kit in action. 

Drilling the oats, the tractor is automatically steered with a positioning system and the drill gets to work. It is known as a "One Pass" as it is a tine seeder that combines soil preparation, seeding and fertiliser application in one pass. The ground looks a bit messy with lots of organic matter from the previous crop as the farm uses minimum tillage instead of ploughing up the ground which could lead to soil erosion.
