Biblically burning Zacata fields

How to manage heavy crop residue from soybeans, remove foxtail seed heads and clean the surface for light tillage ahead of this winter's small grains? Controlled burn! Working in 10' sections going against the wind my father and I zigzagged across 25 acres and managed to get it done in under 3 hours. As the smoke choked out the sun I managed to snap this epic picture of the old timer. Yeah he's still got it going on...
