A good 3 year old buck
Hey guys, fairly new on this site. Been jumping back and forth on forums. Anyone planting this upcoming weekend and what are you planting. I just picked up a new to me tractor. A Kubota 4740. Don't have any implements for it yet but I have a place close by I can rent from. Anyway, my farm is in west central Illinois. I live in NJ. I have time this weekend to get some planting done if the weather allows. I currently have 3 plots. 2 have rye still standing from last year with clover and one is clover that was frost seeded after brassicas. I would like to do a mix in my plots. I have winter rye, buck forage oats, Austrian winter peas, Kopu clover, ground hog radish, purple top turnips, dwarf Essex rape, sugar beets and soybeans. 1st I need to know what to do with the standing rye. 2nd, do you think its too early to plant. Should I till or just broadcast. What do you think. What about any fertilizer recommendations. The ph is low 6's. This would save me a trip of trying to get back out in a few weeks.
