AdFarm Pinto Beans are Sprayed

Hello! This is Farmhand Kirsti, reporting from the heart of the prairie--Griggs Dakota. I have been away from the farm, but am back and ready to inform you on all that's happening.
Let the posting resume!



Above: The AdFarm pinto bean field was sprayed for weeds on Friday, July 3. This is the first pass of post-emergent spray. It is especially important to spray weeds in pinto bean fields when they are small.


Above: Robbie drives our Case IH 7130 tractor. He is pulling a sprayer in an old pickup-truck bed we converted into a trailer. The sprayer is 60 feet wide.


Above: Niece Elissa points out her uncle "RaRa" from her vantage point in the back of the pickup. She loves visiting the farm, and we love having her!
