The last time I cultivated was 1966.
This is how I remember a cultivator worked.
I would go flying and if I blinked I wiped out about 25 ft of 4 rows.
Speed and how much dirt went into the row were variables along with how the you adjusted shields and shovels.

The best way to adjust a row-crop cultivator is with a cutting torch!---Tee

Besides Amish? Yes. I have one that once every few years comes out to take out some escapes. There's a vegetable grower near me who grows some stuff in plastic covered raised beds but cultivates some stuff like sweet corn and beans in rows.

I cultivate my garden,sweet corn,etc,have yet to find a weed or any plant that was steel resistant.I use disk hillers a lot, can get very precise with them.
Plus if I sell produce I get a premium.

Morning glory and Canadian thistle love it when you cultivate it its just giving it 60 units of nitrogen to the original plant and then spreads it all across the field

Many people tell me,,they cant have a garden,,too many weeds in their soil,,,

It can be done,,,hoe or cultivate before it needs it,,and keep it up,,dont say Ill get it next week

Weeds wait for no one,,,lol/vphoto87643.jpg>







Some pictures from different plots I have done over the years,,,no spray,,just kept at it with tilling and hoe

Thistle are a result of too much P compared to K,the more out of balance your soil the worse your weed problem.Never seen a thistle in a corn field or garden in my life.

I've been planting basically in a trench and fill the soil in around the plants as they grow and cover up the weeds between the plants.Leaves very little hand work,also letting the ground warm up before planting so the vegetables take off growing fast makes it easier to control weeds.We raised a good amount of corn when I was growing up and always cultivated.

I cultivate till it gets to big to cultivate. I mulch all but the corn and peas.
Farmall 100 & a 140 that's all they do is lay off rows and cultivate...
The 140 had a set of rolling cultivators on it I will try to post a pix when I use it next it does a bang up job...

I never take the hillers off the 100 I row with it sometimes cultivate with it and use them to throw the dirt to the corn.

BTW whuts a rock : )
