Finally moved into the 20th century and have pre-em markers on the drill.
What's the best way to suggest to the roller man to conserve the visibility of my marks?

Bit of a battle here. I roll tramlines then fill in, sprayer driver avoids the marks. I would rather we had one less set of wheeling and he counts the marks when working out his first spray if it’s not up yet.

Headlands first, then roll with the tramlines. Easier if the rollers about fit the tramlines. 6.3m rollers on 24m tramlines here, manage fine by eye, sometimes use an old gps lightbar to keep widths right if visibiliy is bad.

Why not just roll pre-em marks to put in wheel marks for tramlines first, then roll the field as a whole at an angle so all other roller wheel marks face a different way?

Put the centre of the tractor in line with 1 of the pre em marks so your effectively 1 wheel in the middle of the tramline and another out. Leaves the marks fine even on very light ground
