ATV/Soil Sampling/Automatic Tool to do the job

I recently saw an article on how an ATV /GPS/system was used to take soil samples, but I forgot where I saw the article. It showed a picture of a new tool used to make soil sampling easier and more accurate. Could one help me locate the article? Thanks in advance for your help.

Is hemp dogbane toxic

A local farmer baled some grass hay that contains hemp dogbane (he first thought it was milkweed buta county agronomist identified it as dogbane). He offered to sell me the hay at a reasonable price but we have sheep, lambs, minihorses and foals.

I have not been able to rule out the toxic effect it might have. Can you help?

Grape Vine Prunning

I have a small Commercial Vineyard and have a few questions on prunning. I am using the 4 arm Kniffin System. I understand prunning except for renewal spurs for the next year. Is there a demonstration or seminar anywhere near Perry County soon that I could attend that will demonstrate Grape Prunning?

Long Needle White Pine trees

I have a question I was hoping you would be able to answer for me please. Attached is a picture of our eastern white pine trees I believe. When we moved into this home we were able to view on the other side of the valley the mountain range in the distance which was quite beautiful. In only a couple of years these trees have grown quite a lot in height now pretty much blocking the view. I was wondering is by cutting off tops of these pines, may 1/3 of overall height , if that would somehow kill the tree. I would not want to kill these trees as they are beautiful as well but sure would like the view back of mountain range. I appreciate any assistance you can provide. Thank you. Sincerely, John Fox
