I have had the chance to visit France this week. The country side is beautiful. Also, meet fellow Ag talk member "Etienne" and got a chance to see his farm. Very nice. Etienne's farm is one of the more progressive in France. He has larger equipment like we have in the US and autosteer.
A few notes: No-tillers beware it has not made it across the ocean due in part to GM being outlawed. I felt like I had gone back 20 year when everyone plowed ground around here. I have never seen so many 100hp tractors with 4 bottom flip plows. Also, the wheat seeders are unlike anything I have seen in the US.
