We have 20 acres that has been unused for years. We want to put the front 4.5 acres in brome and need to have a way to generally take care of weeds in the pasture and rest of the property. I have a Kubota 3901. I am thinking we will need a sprayer and a hopper type seeder . The sprayer would be more cost effective for generalized weed control and the hopper would be used for seed application.
The front 4.5 acres was in corn and soy beans and the soil is very good. I am thinking about weed spraying this in preparation for early winter planting of a brome mix. There is slope to this area as it was terraced but has been smoothed down.
Has anyone delt with getting a property going in this regard? I don’t know who to contact even for help. Trying to not get raked over the coals and doing what we can ourselves. I feel this equipment will always be needed as you are always spraying for weeds or planting grass although the hopper type attachment will be used less I imagine but if we are planting a lot up front it would pay for itself.
We are building next year. There is no house or barn.
