Background edit

Before 1989, many farms in Czechoslovakia did not have enough combine harvesters for the harvest season. They borrowed them from STS (Strojní a Traktorová Stanice), the "Machine and Tractor Station". A route was planned, and the groups of combine harvesters started in the east and harvested farms on the way home. This is the story of one of those groups, from Nepomuk in the Plzeň Region.
