Totally faked. The dust doesn't behave properly, at the top of the frame it moves at a different rate than the actual image. most of it moves at nearly the same speed as the tractor. At the back of the tractor, the dust just disappears, it doesn't drop or float of, it just disappears. The dust rises into the air like smoke, it doesn't drop like dust. The side of the tractor might be that dirty but that looks fake too. Nothing about the dust behaves like dust in an open field would.

What might it be? First, its a combine working a very dry crop residue, so it must have been a very green crop that has dried very well. The combine is harvesting the seed of this crop. Next, why so much dust in the front? Likely this was a crop 3-4 feet tall after having been cut to dry and it has dried down to a foot or less. Also, the pickup is very low to the ground, so to get the product into the header, lots of thrashing is going on. The very dark leaves break apart easy, so the dust is mainly in the front and the seed pods get fed into the combine.
The dust out the back is lighter the leaves are broken up more in the header than the theshing operation. Also, dirt out the back looks like that as well...
