Actually quite the contrary! Because of the cascade of soil on the leading edge of the blade all of the small stones are buried, or at least pushed down to flush with the soil surface. The big stones will roll in front of the blade until the simply slide off the end sitting nicely up on top. Very simple to find and pick them after. Because all of the small stones are under or at least flush, soybeans is an excellent crop to follow with as when harvesting it the head on the combine is only about 2 inches off the ground.
