Time and land losses with electric towers in agricultural fields

Authors: Fortin, J. M. And C. Vigneault
Description: Time and land loss due to the presence of an electric tower in an agricultural field is becoming more important with the use of larger, more efficient and more expensive farm machines. Moreover, the higher costs of labor, energy and agricultural products cause farmers to consider the ad verse economic effects of electric towers in their fields. This study deals with the interaction between farm machines and electric towers which results in a certain amount of land loss for crop production and supplementary time for turning around.
