A single acre of ground is gone over 22 times with different implements before planting the potato seed.
One of these implements to prep the ground includes spraying for weeds.
Another implement includes rotatilling the ground an average of 8 times before planting potato seed.
Typically there are 5-15 tractors working on planting in one field at a time.
Here tractors are being loaded with potato seed. One filled planter of potato seed can plant up to 4 rows of potatoes (1.5 miles).
