Spraying Soybeans and Digging. I spent most of the afternoon running the sprayer and preparing a corner for some soybean planting after the neighbors had their broken tile repaired.

The recent interest in food, combined with a large amount of 'misinformation' has driven me to start this channel. I hope to be someone people can relate to and trust when they question how their food is grown and raised. I also hope to become a 'smarter' farmer through my experiences with this channel. I strongly believe we must have an open mind and a willingness to learn about others, or we cannot move forward as one. My goal is to build the connection between farmers and consumers by facilitating a collaborative conversation amongst everyone. I do this by sharing my day-to-day farming experiences, my opinions on certain topics, and occasionally visiting other farms and businesses to help better understand other farming and business practices. There is no limit to where this channel may go, so please join me!! "peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding." -Albert Einstein

Ryan Mac : I wear the same thing while spraying, haters gonna hate.

Steamfan71 : Man if you had Morning Glory,Johnson grass,Chinese Latern,Coffee weed and Red weed you could complete the collection.

Jonathan B : Spraying round up then walking into the fields, and also changing the nozzle without protection ouch... I encourage you to research the cost those products have on all life, especially your own touching it like that... Be safe!

raffy1ca : Your channel is my favourite farming channel! Content, editing and information is perfect! I appreciate the time you take to make and edit these videos! Keep em coming! Cheers from Saskatchewan!

Jacob Wandless : who doesn't wear long socks with tennis-shoes and shorts? I know i do

Hoserfishing : Do some research on using low water volumes when spraying. I custom applied for over 30 yrs and experimented with alot of different methods of application. Low water volumes is where it's at for almost everything. In fact I had farmers giving me exclusive first dibs on very large farms as they did their scouting and decided after several yrs to use my machine as much as possible. 2.6 gals imperial measurement/acre down to 1.3 gpa. You do have to reduce your chemical by a fair bit as it is much more effective with top quality nozzles and low water volumes. Australia pioneered alot of this technology. They have the largest farms in the World and not alot of water.

TwoHappyChildrenFarm : Great videos. Red tip strainers saved me many times. Seems like generics gum up more than the name brands.

Will Thrill : So glad I found this channel! I absolutely love farming and love videos like this.

Richard Radawetz : Chemical resistant gloves. Really careless with chemicals

Pietro Lesca : I'm so impressed how big machinery you use and how much technology there's in it. I'm saying that because in my farm everything looks so small compared to your's. Our sprayer is only 12 m wide carried by a 100 hp tractor, matched with a rudimental gps sistem. But let's be honest, it does the job and that's enough for us, because here in italy we don't have such huge land extentions and it would be very difficult to handle such big machines. Anyway, great video as always. Keep on going like this Zach.

Dennis and Helen : Great video, thanks for sharing. Hope you and your family have a great 4th

Joseph Shiflett : I enjoy watching your videos because I always ride with my grandpa

Ben Drinkin : Lucky! The only highboy we have is a jd 6100. Which was an improvement over our 6000 that the standard shift between your legs.
