Illinois students become familiar with the most up-to-speed farming equipment

According to The Times Union, the equipment that the students had a chance to observe was the John Deere 8270R and the 1770NT planter, which will eventually be lent to the Heyworth FFA for planting soybeans near the school. These advanced models contain a state-of-the-art GPS system that steers the machines through the field with precision and accuracy.
"I have been able to drive a tractor since I was about 8 or 9 years old and ever since then, there have been so many changes," a student told the news source. "Stuff like the GPS system, though, is amazing. It's something that my grandfather and father might not use all that much, but I think I might."
