The implement had 16 seed and chemical hoppers squeezed in tightly on the toolbar 15 inches apart and was planting one of nine test plots across the United States that are part of a cooperative project between agricultural company Delta & Pine Land Co. (D&PL), agricultural implements manufacturer John Deere AG and Monsanto to study the benefits and challenges of growing cotton in 15-inch rows. D&PL provided seed, John Deree the equipment and Monsanto is contributing Roundup herbicide for the project.
