Re: Planting turninps
Bowman, I'll try to use my agronomy background for this. With a very small seed such as turnips (as with alfalfa) I think it would be very important to plant them directly into th soil and not broadcast them on top. Seed to soil contact is critical with such small seeds. If you do not have the equipment for that I would at the very least try to get the ground worked up good then broadcast the seed then use something like a drag harrow to cover the seed. Also if you have access to a roller/packer you might want to run over it with that to firm up the seed bed. Then pray for a nice slow rain. As for your sunlight question, as you get later into the year you will get less direct sunlight. If you are planting this in timber, some part of your plot will probably be in the shad all the time. As with any crop, the more sunlight the better. I hope this helps.
I like them with BIG racks!!!
