Re: Rolling your land

I roll whatever is neccesary and yes I pull my roller behind the drill for peas and sometimes for lentils. I have pulled it behind doing cereals in certain situations as well. I dont like rolling cereals as most cereals are seeded on pulse stubble in this area which can lead to erosion under certain conditions.

Re: Rolling your land

We roll all the cereals and even some of the canola if the feild is rocky enough. I think the cost is justified alone by the savings in swather gaurds.

Re: Rolling your land

Never heard of anybody rolling anything other then pulse crop ground. Its usually hard to find a roller that you can rent, long enough to do your pulse fields before it has to go to the next guy. Unless you own one yourself. Some guys roll there hayland to push rocks that the frost brought up.

Re: Rolling your land

In my experience if we roll cereals we have to roll it before emergence or else we get to much leaf desease from smearing the plant into the ground.
