    • On the way to the field we saw… Ben, aren’t you a little old for these now??
    • Look yonder – the AdFarm field Ben, grew up somewhere over here on the horizon.
    • The East Side – High Ground
    • Looks pretty good from the road
    • Heavy swathes on the high ground This could be a 40 bushel crop
    • Note how tightly the swathes are tied into the stubble. These guys have farmed in the “suck and blow zone” for years

    • Wow – look at those swathes This could be better than the east side
    • I’m a farmer in my truck getting pretty excited about my canola. Look at me farm…but
    • Something is not quite right about the colour …
    • The stubble sure is green down here
    • The swath looks dirty and is a darker shade… I should get out of my truck.
    • A closer look
