I've done enough of this stuff to know pros when I see them. Check this out

Watch them! The descend on the field like a flock of birds! Check out the flagging 20 minutes or so in.... I'm pretty sure they're flagging out alternate plantings and coordination and staging areas with various seeds types. I bet they even have runners for seed resupply. And that trick with the pop bottles? Killer

Anyone speak Hindi (I think... Tamil maybe?)?
