Getting Ready To Plough

Recommended Posts

I did a short test run and did not lower the plough completely, but the 3 bottom plough moved through centuries old grazing land like it was pulling a small wagon at depth of just over 6-7 inches. I chose not to use coulters as even with short grass it tends to clog the ploughs. Tomorrow I will stake out a 10 acre plot with flags and wait for a good day to put steel to earth. The David Brown 990 6 speed live drive is  just a wonderful joy to drive and each day I'm getting more proficient in her operation.

 That ground looks quite hard, Alain. How deep are you wanting to plough?

Hard as stone. Its had cow or buffaloes on it for a millennium. About 8 inches is all I need to plant hemp. The plant material will rot into the topsoil providing a good amount of nutrients where its needed, on the top 6 inches
