High school agriculture students get a sample of groundbreaking equipment

One of the reasons Classic John Deere has such a flawless reputation is because it has endured and prospered for more than one hundred years. Becoming infused in the subculture of farm life, the manufacturer's influence has continued to spark the interest of younger generations. Now, John Deere is taking advantage of this by boosting its campaign to inform children, encouraging them to pursue careers in farming.

In Heyworth, Illinois, local high school agriculture students were given the opportunity to see how smooth it is to operate a state-of-the-art John Deere 8270R tractor and a 1770NT planter, according to These new machines have advanced GPS systems that allow them to navigate with ease, making crop production a quicker and more precise process.

"The industry has perfected this equipment to the point where all you really have to do is engage it and then sit back and relax," the sales manager at a local tractor dealership, Chad Colby, told the news source. "It steers itself through the field and even makes the turns at the end. The accuracy is just amazing."
