 Re: Tractor terms in reply to samn40, 02-17-2013 07:32:20  
I've spent a little time over there with farmers and heard the term corn used with wheat as well as oats. Might be a generic term to cover all small grains including barley, although including barley might be a stretch. Not tractor related but a car's trunk is called the boot. Side story: Attended a video conference with the Japanese concerning a prototype wheel loader we were testing. One of the topics included occasional problems we were having with the electronics. Japanese asked if we were sure the "dirt wire" was properly connected. Took several seconds to realize they were referring to the ground wire.
