Smaller, Autonomous Implents Ease Compaction?
Here's a neat story by Gil Gullickson about the possibility of having several smaller, lighter implements instead of one heavy one. Have them operate autonomously, 24/7. Do away with the quad-track and 36 row planter and have 3-4 cheaper machines that perform some of the duties unattended.
Would you be willing to have 4 6 row planter instead of a 36 row if they would run on their own and were cheapter to buy and ooperate?

Many BTOs only seem to care about $ per acre. Prove to them automated machines are cheaper per acre and they will choose those.
