a lot depends on your soil,chisel plowing doesnt bury the residue,like a moldboard does. Doesnt help control insects like corn borer and grasshopper. In my opinion,its lots of times a trade off. Around here folks have nearly all gone min till,with chisels and things. But they spray now more than ive ever seen. They claim they can spray far cheaper than they can cultivate plow and things,which is probably true. Ive not sprayed a whole lot over the years, but ive got some pastures that just came out of a lease that will have to have weed control work done.Im setting up a mower now to mow, then i intend to spray in spring. I'm going to keep good records on each with the same tractor,and see which is more cost effective for me. That should give me a good handle on which is best for this place. You might try the same,borrow/lease a chisel and try it once.See if the results would make it worth while.All that being said, ive seen farms plowed with moldboards this year that ive never seen turned before,i dont know if they simply had to bury stubble from crops that didnt make because of the drought,or were trying to catch any rain they could,but theres alot turned over now.Might not be a good time to be playing around with your farming program if your in one of the drought areas.
