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.

Those look to be some great future kill plots! That attachment is pretty slick for ripping those cedars out, could really use something like for a few days!

Took a day to set tower posts and plant mescanthis screens. My buddy was renting tree planter to i took advantage of him having it and helped him plant on some of his clients farms. Planted about 2,000 rhizomes on my place. I’m pretty excited to see all this taking shape. Progress….
