Photographer's Note

A common site this time of year on the Canadian and American prairies. The machine here is an 'air seeder;' it uses forced air to push the seeds through a series of tubes and into each soil opener. The John Deere tractor has over 300 horsepower, and the seed tank in the back holds over 200 bushels of seed. A machine like this could probably plant in excess of 200 acres in a day quite easily. It's high-tech farming!
