    A growing trend of technological advancement in the peanut industry is auto steering tractors. The technology involves a system that uses GPS technology to assist farmers in guiding tractors and navigating through their fields.

Auto-steer creates corresponding pathways, which is the best option for farmers when planting and inverting. With the help of auto steering the tractor is able to follow the exact same centerline for both (Thompson, 2013).While this technology does help productivity it does not…
