We put in a small 1/4 acre of Arrow Seed Krunch n Munch. This area was a previous Christmas tree field which had been allowed to go fallow a over a decade ago. The soil was very sandy and had a decently thick turf build up.
The client had completed a soil sample so we knew how much lime and fertilizer were needed which was very important. We started by making 3 passes with the Rotovator to work up the soil and incorporate the existing plant matter. Ideally the area would have been hit with Round-Up a few weeks earlier but oh well…
Next we spread the lime and fertilizer and made another pass with the Rotovator to mix it in well. A pass with the cultipacker prepared the seedbed.
Being able to use the no-till drill allow proper seed placement. Another pass or two with the cultipacker and we were done.
Looks like the planting came in quite nicely!
