In Reply to: How to plow a field? posted by Adam P on Thursday, March 03, 2005:
Find the center of the field in the front center and back, mark off the center with stakes or sticks if you want to just run them over. Eye up the last stake with the first two just to give yourself a straight line. line up the tractor on the stakes and plow as straight as you can. turn around at the end and plow back up the field with the first bottom completely over lapping so that the middle hill is higher than the rest again as straight as you can.
When you get to the top again line up the wheel in the ditch(furrow) so that the first bottom is covering up the furrow. The object is to have all of the hills(accept center) even. I don't Know what adjustments you have on you plow but it is fairly easy to figure out.
Next time you plow the field you want to throw the dirt out so you have a ditch instead of the center ridge
When disking always go off a few degrees from straight to help level field and you will have to disk the ridge several times to knock it down.Don't forget to use a heavy pipe or square stock behind the disk(a little longer).
The disk should also be adjustable, the more rank the adjustment the more dirt gets thrown in the middle. Also slowing down or speeding up will adjust this. Still shooting for level.
In a larger Fields you can divide the field in half or thirds
I would start out in second or third for plowing and jump up a gear for disking and adjust gear as needed
After plowing let the field set for at least two weeks then at least a week between disking. You'll have to disk at least twice
