Ronnie Flatt engages autosteer on his John Deere combine as he harvests winter wheat on his farm near Centralia. Flatt has been a farmer for 46 years and said improvements to technology have made harvesting much more comfortable than it used to be. When he's in his combine, he has air-conditioning, a mini fridge, autosteer and other comforts that weren't available when he began farming.
