Corn planting photos

Finished planting field corn last week. Have 50 acres, down from the usual 80 or so. 
Rotated to a different field this year. Close to the pump and with a more silty and better drained soil. Ground was in wheat last year. We planted through some pretty tall stubble. Use a six row strip-tiller by Unverferth. It is pretty aggressive and we go 16 or so inches deep. Trying to break up some hard ground. Doesn't always looks so pretty. Use a no-till White 5100 planter.
