In the early morning hours, farmers will usually start getting the fields prepped for the fall wheat crop to be seeded. The video clip below, Farmer Joe explains that he is spraying out weeds that have started growing in the harvested wheat stubble.
Farmer Jay finished the garbanzo bean harvest down at the Tammany farm and moved his combine up to the Genesee farm. The header on the combines need to be removed for highway travel.

With two big combines in the field, we can go through about 100 acres of garbanzo's per day per combine.
