One round, then use the wheel tracks as my guide and do drive in them while turning.
80 ft pull type.

Depends on the field. Sometimes one sometimes two. Sometimes I go around the second time to the far side of the field and work my way back. If we do two headlands on some of our fields with 120' there isn't much left.

1 round and square turns. It slow's me down and minimizes crop damage. Plus I can't nail a round turn for no money.

Two rounds until late fungicide time. The turns are just smoother and easier on the sprayer that way. Once the crop is heading one headland and drive in the tracks. Fields are relatively big and open here.

We do 2 headlands, so many irregular shaped fields just makes it hard to do it with one. Turn between the headlands, find driving on the crop does no damage so don't feel the need to follow the tracks, if doing fungicides though, try to follow the headland tracks as much as possible.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Usually two passes for herbicides.

Then 1 for fung, bugs, and pre harvest.

Just added Nextswath on my Trimble TMX. It makes very nice automated turns once the boundaries are done.
Smoother than I can make on my own. I think well worth the price of the option.
Just set how far from boundary you want boom to end up.

Only one headland ever. Usually turn and hang boom over fence/road for herbicide and for fungicide I follow tramlines which makes it easy to line up next pass. Makes headlands super easy too!

Exact same as swman. 2 headlands = wasted time IMO
