How many tractors does it take to plant?
You’d usually say one, of course.
But in parts of the Dakotas this year it’s taking one tractor to pull the planter and another tractor, or perhaps even two tractors, to pull the planter tractor when it gets stuck.
Pull tractors have been needed a lot in the fall with combines and sugarbeet lifters, but not so much in the spring.
Every year is different, I guess, and this one will be one for the record books.
