1 Purpose and scope
1.1 This Standard provides for hand signals to be used in agricultural operations especially when noise or distance precludes the use of normal voice communication.
1.2 The purpose of the hand signals is to provide an easy means of communication, particularly in the interest of safety.
2 General
2.1 These hand signals are in general agreement with US. Army Field
Manual, FM, Section II, Standard Armand Hand Signals. Many of them are also used in construction and other industries where noise or distance precludes the use of voice communications.
