Give credit to farmers and their creativity. Not only are they saving time, input dollars and the environment thanks to the tools of precision agriculture, some growers find ways to use it to enhance their personal lives.
Vega, Texas grower Braden Gruhlkey used his John Deere GreenStar GPS-based guidance system to accurately plow the letters of his marriage proposal to his girlfriend Lauren.
“I just used an A+heading line for the top and bottom of the letters. I used this as a guide to see how big to make my letters. Then I just made ab and a+ heading lines to make the letters. And it worked nice because when I got one letter finished I could use the same lines and just shift track them. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I did it all in the field. I thought it turned out pretty neat.”
Then, on April 18th, Braden took girlfriend Lauren for an airplane ride and popped the question.
With the help of GreenStar, Braden’s creativity was a huge hit…she became his fiance.
