For Curry Parker of Headland, Alabama, hard work and sharp eyes are his most important assets when it comes to being an efficient farmer and winner of this year’s Farm Press Peanut Efficiency Award for the lower Southeast region.
“I did it by not being lazy, do whatever the crop needs, and use my eyes to see what’s going on,” Curry said after receiving the award. He also says he does just fine without a computer. “We have the RTK on the tractors, but that’s the only technology I use,” he said.
