Almost all the good new farm techniques originate in the UK or Europe. I'm proud to say that what happened 15 or 20 years ago, is now adopted in the USA.
I am grateful for the farm innovation. I always look to the east for the next big thing. I'm glad that someone gets a new idea every generation. Look at the FWD tractor market. before the push pull plow in the early 80's, a FWD tractor was rare in the states. I'm glad to see that even though we don't do the up and over ploughing, we still have adopted the FWD tractor.
I hope that you know that I am on top of the trends that originated out your way. I just hope that the newest trends will make my life a lot easier.
Thanks for being on top of the newest trends.

Hi John, The "Up and over" plow or reversible as we call it has virtually replaced the conventional plow here. At the risk of sounding like a broken record we started using drum and disc type mowers here in the late 1960's.(After having toyed with Howard rotovators second most disastrous machine, the Haytimer flail mower) Quite honestly I can't remember the last time I saw someone mowing a field here with a tractor drawn sickle mower.

Another unsung hero that has saved farmers thousands of man hours throughout the world was indeed an American. John Appleby, The man who pioneered the Twine Knotter.
