Hilling Soybeans
My brother-in-law is hilling the rows here in this soybean field. This means that he's creating a groove between the rows and pushing the soil toward the plants. This is done mostly for irrigation purposes (i.e. for gravity irrigation), but even in fields with center pivot irrigation it can be used to make planting easier next year.

My little baby was actually riding in the tractor here, along with his mommy and his uncle.
