The ground needs to be real dry for them to do the job and in that if you pick up a handfull of soil and squese it and it holds together then it is to wet to do the job as when it makes the cut it will instead of fracturing the soil make a slick shiny hardpan that the water cannot penetrate, it needs to be fractured for the water to penetrate. If it is too wet when done a good hard freeze will help break up the hardpan that you had just made, more freeze thaw cycles the better.. And any pattern will work, depending on how much time you want to put in and how hard you think the ground is, a lot of time they will just run every 5-6' and let it be done but then it will not fracture all the soil between the cut so not all can absorb the water. if you can do it every 18" then just about all the soil will be fractured, if not that close then every 2 1/2 - 3' is good or you can go crossways and it will also help. I would assume the poster that thought it kept the ground wetter did it when it was too wet and it did not have enough freeze thaw cycles to fracture the hardpan that was made in doing it.

Thanks again!! Boy, I have found out about subsoiling!! Well, we don't have any rock on this farm!! Growing up...we picked rock!!! And we get lots of freezing and thawing up here in northern Mn. And it's dry right now. But, we did get about 1" snow last nite. So, we will see if it warms up. Thanks again for all the info. Bobmn
