The widespread and increasingly rapid adoption of GPS-based guidance systems has resulted in significant changes in Delta farming operations. Ten years ago, a 4,000-acre farmer might have eight or nine tractors; today, he does it with three or four. These systems allow him to extend the workday in critical spring/fall operations; now, he can go 24/7.
