I am studying Horticulture, Organic Agriculture, and Local Food Systems at the University of Georgia, but I am actually using this image in an English class. I was not raised on a farm, and so I would appreciate it if someone would comment on any and all details in the picture that I might be missing. For example, is the dust mainly composed of eroding soil? What is it like to operate a combine, and how much does that type of work typically pay? Does this look like a good harvest?
I posted this question on the No-Till Farmer forum, but the forum is not very active. Do y'all know of any good farming forums? The first couple results on Google looked a little seedy (pardon my pun).
