What's next for row-crop planters? Tom Evans with Great Plains Manufacturing and Austin Gruel with John Deere discuss features of their latest row-crop planters. Both were speakers at a Farm Industry News seminar on row-crop planters held during the 2012 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky.

Evans says farmers are interested in automatic swath control on planters. He also sees great interest in automated row-unit down-pressure.

Gruel reports John Deere is introducing Seed Star XP that will offer operators more information. Customers also are very interested in managing down-force pressure. Deere is offering an active pneumatic down-force feature.

Has 3 different settings depending on how tough the hair is and what area is being shaved. It is a great addition to my kitchen. The rest of my workouts during the week were just as good if not better! I recommend this to anyone who is looking to kick there workouts up another level. Not only do we trust Burt's Bees to be all natural, but of all the diaper ointment we've tried, none has as much of noticeable effect than this one. Hey, it's just cheap plastic. Silybum
(see what works for you:) I also used a permanent marker to discreetly label the needle colors & thread tree (U,Lo,L,R) I've threaded the machine from scratch three times now and only had trouble when the lower looper somehow lost its thread. Bottom line, I will continue using it because it is fast and easy; and it does a decent job of shaving my face. I hope Amazon keeps selling these! We go through these like crazy with our Canon MX860 printer! Very easy to open/use! I checked around, and this is the best price. Brain Age is a lot of fun, and very addicting. The camera seemed fine, out of the box, small & compact. I purchased this because the other required Med-Surge textbook purchased back in the Fall was not explained as well.
