DPH Farms: Spreading Lime before winter monsoons


Recommended Posts

We are finally getting some rain here.? Only got a little more than an inch the two months after Hurricane Rita.? Right before the rain we wanted to disk up the old soybean land and get some lime spread on it.? We lost the use of the large red disk temporarily but we still wanted the 9220 jd and the stx 375hd to both? run, so we found one of our old cih disks that we hadn't used in over 10 years.? The color shows its ages cause it is now orange instead of red.? We did some repairs and checked things out and let the two tractors go at it.? The 9270 is still in the shop, getting its winter maintanace done.




It rained after we disked the fields, but about 3 days later it was dry enough to start spreading lime.? We called UAP, and they sent out their new 4920 dry box spreader.? They also sent a pull unit for us to pull to speed things up.




After the lime was spread in some of the fields, we decided to pass our field cultivator over the field.
