South Dakota farmer Pat Breen makes only one trip across the field when it's time to plant. He does that using a 60-ft.-wide Horsch Anderson air seeder equipped with an Exactrix fertilizing system.

The entire setup stretches 110 ft. from bumper to tailgate and consists of a John Deere 9630 pulling the 48-shank air-seeder followed by a 500-bu. air cart that then pulls a homemade fertilizer cart. The cart holds two, 1,000-gal. anhydrous ammonia tanks and two 750-gal. liquid fertilizer tanks. No saddle tanks are attached to the tractor.
