As some of you may recall, my son purchased a golf course(for the property) and home last spring. This coming spring, we would like to plant some food plots on the upper 2 fairways and greens closest to the bush line. This property was originally a farm that was turned into a gulf course about 20 years ago, and so I would imagine that the soil has not been disturbed since then.
question #1: Once all the grasses have been cut and killed off, how deep should the soil be ripped?
#2: What would be the best implement to do the job, if I were using my 2320? A soil pulverizer, A box blade with rippers, or some type of plow?
I was thinking a soil pulveriser. It can disturb the soil and prep it for seed at the same time, just not sure if the teeth can go deep enough to do the job.
A box blade could probably cut deep enough, but then I would need another tool to prep and flatten the soil ready for seed.
Or do I need to plow it, and then prep the surface ready for seed with something like a disk?
Now I realize that a 2320 is a little on the small side for this kind of work, but I have all the time I need and can do several passes if necessary.
