11x14 oil on textured gessoboard "Tobacco Rows"

For some reason they leave wide rows every so often in the tobacco fields. Maybe for the harvester?

The wide rows are called "truck middles." The harvester/tobacco primer can go down any row...but..if the farmer chooses to hand prime instead of using a harvester a tractor pulling a trailer can go down the truck middles.

Well now I know why they leave the wide rows. Thanks for explaining Dana. Not many people I know could answer that one. Cool.
