Spring 2011 http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/ Spring 2011 Ken, Art, and Stan are picking stones in a field that will be planted to soybeans. Stones bigger than a softball are picked to avoid damage to the field equipment. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=122917607 122917607 This is a dry fertilizer spreader. In this photo micronutrients are being applied to the soil. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=122917608 122917608 This is our cattle manure fertilizer spreader. Cattle manure is a great source of nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium for the crops. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=122917609 122917609 Pictured here is a tank spreader followed by an Aerway. The Aerway has star-like discs that pock holes in the soil for better manure incorporation in the soil and to reduce the smell. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=122917610 122917610 Soybean Planter During the winter months we replaced parts on this planter. Soybean planting will be taking place as soon as the ground dries from all the early spring rains. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=124180567 124180567 Corn Planter The corn planter also received new parts this winter. This planter will be put to work as soon as the fields are dry enough. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=124180568 124180568 Soybean Planter Stan and his son Kaleb are planting soybeans in corn stubble left from last years crop. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=125236047 125236047 Filling the bean planter Stan fills the soybean planter about every three hours. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=125235552 125235552 Corn Planter This picture is of Art planting corn in a field that was planted to soybeans last year. http://www.blightfarms.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=125235553 125235553
