No they didn't choose to do it that way. With a system that has both a hydraulic drive module and a clutch module, the sections would shut down based on GPS from the auto swath through the clutches. If the planter was left down quite a ways into the headlands there would be a point where the seed shaft would still be turning but not really doing anything since all the clutches were stopping planting for that drive. Once the planter was raised then the implement switch or the Master would STOP the drive(s).
You must use an implement switch and time raising/lowering the planter to avoid planting into the headlands or use the Master switch to attempt to turn the drives ON/OFF at the correct spot.
