I'm amongst the "small timers" myself. I work a "real" job, but I work 12's so I only work 4 days one week, 3 the next, days/nights swings and every 5 weeks I'm off for 15 days. When it times out right I can be in the field and forget I have any other job. I don't use autosteer, I picked up a used Raven Cruizer for GPS guidance because I couldn't see my foam marker well in between rows prior to canopy, and I wasn't aware if I missed a spot. I still do the driving, but the GPS tells me when I'm finished if I missed something worth going back after. Lots of point rows in irregular fields = lots of room for misses when you're trying to limit your overspray. My Spra Coupe had a 50 foot boom, I cut it down to 45 this year to make it cover 18 rows as I plant with a 6 row and 18 are my usual end rows. I don't use the GPS on the planter, just markers, but picked up some ground late this year that I had to no-till and wished I had it on there then. Hope to not have to no-till any next year, if I do I will probably try the GPS along with markers on that. The rains didn't come this year for us on the corn, enough to prevent a total loss, I will have some small pieces do 160 or better but there will be plenty of double-digit corn yield. I think the rains hit the beans right, getting one right now, and they should be good-excellent. First year in awhile I've not contracted any, with this market whatever I get when I sell them will be more than anything I could have contracted for at my normal time. I will store all I have bin space for until Jan. and sell the rest out of the field on the spot. Have 120 acres of beans this year and just under 150 of corn.
