Scott Farms 2016 Cotton Strip Tillage

Published on May 24, 2016 by horsepowers

Scott Farms is trying to finish planting a large cotton field. A John Deere 8370R pulls a LMC 12 row ripper stripper preparing strips for the plant to plant into. The field was too hard the previous day so they ran the irrigation pivot over it the night before. Now with an additional rain just before I started filming the field was a little too wet for the strip till rig. They are mudding through it though at reduced speed. The planter is following a few rounds behind the strip till rig. The planter, a John Deere 1720 12 row stack fold unit, is being pulled with a John Deere 8285R.
