I have a Great Plains 3P600 (min-till compact seeder) and have been using it to plant the past few years with pretty good success. I mow, disc, cultipack, and then use the seeder to plant. Each time I plant oats/sorghum - I've been happy with the results - though it's quite a time-consuming process.
If I'm planting on a food plot with minimum weeds/plants that was tilled the year prior - do I need to continue the disc/cultipacking steps?
I ask because I planted oats in very dry soil last weekend and I'm slightly concerned about putting seeds into dry soil if the rain forecasted for this week doesn't pan out. Curious if I might have lost out on some moisture retained in the soil by discing it prior. Soil is mostly clay loam.
