The Eyes Have It
Derek Watters has the ability to see behind grain wagons from the driver’s seat of his tractor. No, the Murray, Ky., farmer does not have an elaborate series of mirrors or superhero X-ray vision. But he does have a video camera system, which allows him to see places he could not see before.
The system, manufactured by Ag Cam—complete with a magnet-mounted camera, cable and cab-mounted monitor—permits him to safely monitor traffic behind his tall
grain cart as he moves from field to field during harvest. It also allows him to have another vantage point as his corn, soybean and wheat crops are moved during harvest.
