Piste basher swaps snow for soil
Farmers Weekly Interactive
No farmer really needs a machine that can scale a mountain, bulldoze thousands of tonnes of snow and carve out a half pipe. But unless you're the sort of person that likes needlepoint and walking holidays you'll already be dreaming up an elaborate reason why you need one.

Choosing a tiller
Grit
Gardeners have been stirring the soil ahead of planting for as long as gardens have been around. In some cases, the tilling was little more than a scraping away of existing vegetation and loosening the soil with a rock or stick. In others, bone or rock hoes and antler-tine cultivators accomplished the same work. Still later, animals were employed to do the digging directly, or to provide the draft for pulling larger wooden and then iron and wood plows and cultivators through the ground. Fast forward to the 21st century, and you can still do all of the above, and you can also add purpose-built mechanized tillers to the mix.

Iowa: John Deere completes $150 million modernization of foundry
Foundry-Planet
John Deere has fired up its $150 million baby. It is a complete modernization of the John Deere foundry on Westfield Avenue. Three years in the making, it is the latest in more than $1 billion in investments Deere has made over the past decade in its Waterloo operations the company's largest manufacturing complex in the world. "We believe having a foundry provides us a competitive edge," said Josh Wittenburg, manager of foundry operations in Waterloo. The project gives Deere "the ability to produce larger castings to match the growth in the size of our tractors," said Thad Nevitt, factory manager of the Deere Waterloo Works. The company's industry-leading large row-crop tractors are manufactured in Waterloo. But it isn't just the plant itself that provides the edge.
