Photographer's Note

Tractor 'tramlines' in a still-green wheat crop.

The tracks are set in place when the crop is sown by blocking the appropiate pipes on the seed drill.

This saves on expensive seed corn, then the following passes over the crop with fertiliser and herbicide will follow the exact same track - giving accurate application with no overlaps - as well as avoiding crushing the crop.
