Many years ago I tried some row crop farming in Southern Minnesota. The land had been in corn the previous year by the previous farmer. I disked the stalks and tried to plow with my Super M and a 3-14 plow. The plow constantly clogged up with the corn stalk residue. I tried disking some of it again, and the plow still plugged. I tried trailing some 9 gauge wire off the plow to try to divert the stalks down, and it still plugged.

I bought an old used stalk chopper and ran over the field with it. No more clogs in the plow. That old stalk chopper was a life-saver.

I'm glad you got your machine fixed.

Plowing stalks can be "fun". I tried something similiar on our plow years ago to try and keep the stalks down. Didnt work the best but seem to help a little. It seems some years leaving them alone helps but other years it doesnt. Was always different in picked corn as well.
