We plant triticale and wheat two ways. Mostly by drill, at about two bu. per acre. If you really have to make time, disc the acreage once, mix the seed at three bu. per acre, and broadcast it with your fertilizer, then a light disking or cultipacker over it. We also will broadcast it at three bu/ac into corn stalks, then take a gyro-mower over the stalks.

Thanks, I think I will try what you and all the others have suggested. The field has never been planted, so I'm going to disk it really well, see how that looks, and probably try broadcasting the seed, along with some fertilizer(which I'm glad was suggested)and probably use a drag harrow or a packer, if I can find one, to make sure the seed is covered. I think when it starts to grow will tell me a lot, so I need to watch, to see how I did and what I need to do..thanks to everyone for the help.........

Set the buggy for half rate and cover the acreage twice- the seed will not go as far as the fertilizer coming off the spinners, so a cross hatch pattern will give better coverage.....

Ok, that sounds good, and it sounds like you will get really good coverage. Great idea to do a criss-cross technique. Never thought the fertilizer mixed would do that. I'm really glad you told me, because it sounds like you have been there, done that. thanks.......a lot!!
