    If it were about a month ago I'd have time to help you out.

    Here's a rental in Shawnee, https://www.gprents.com/contact-us.asp

    $175 daily for a 35hp tractor and $100 for a 3pt roto-tiller. Speed x Implement width(in ft) x .1212 tells how many acres per hour you can do. 2mph x 5' tiller x .1212 would be 1.2a per hour. 3"-5" depth would take care of the trash as long as it's had a few days to dry out and it looks like it's brown already.

    Or just rent the tiller if you've got the tractor.

    If you will look at my second pic. There are huge clumps of johnson grass everywhere. After it was mowed, I left it for a week to let the moisture out of the residue. Went in with a 6' 3 point tiller when the grass was dry and it chopped up nicely while being incorporated into the soil. Spread 3 times the required amount of ladino clover over the finely worked soil and drove over it with the tractor to just press the tiny seed into the soil.
    Need a rain event that lasts for several days to get good germination. The cooler weather will hold the moisture in the soil longer.

    Went out to pull camera cards on my place here in Piedmont and found my food plots have really taken off over the last week.
