Even with no till, weeks and weeks of 95 plus degrees and no rain will be tough on the brassica. Although I guess most folks (not me) got a bunch of rain yesterday.
That corn looks great by the way. Like the no till drill, is it new? My problem is I'd have to also buy a bigger tractor.

There was lots of rain the weeks prior. This plot is on top so drains well. Im not ever going to till another fall plot;l. We got rain the last two days. No-till certainly makes it more drought resistant due to not turning the dirt to dust with a tiller or disc(releasing all the moisture) prior to planting.
Ive had the drill since 2017 or 18 I believe but never tried brassicas/fall plots with it other than the cereal grains last fall (broadcast small seeds over top).
Corn is kicking a s s- way better dirt than my last farm (I am right off the east form Chariton River.)
What size is your tractor? I used to run this drill with my mfwd 40 hp MF.

Amen, that no till is killer for fall plots. I put my radishes in the big bin and drill them to 3/8-1/2 and turnips in the small box. Makes a killer plot and saves the moisture. Well done sir.
