I am looking for a recommendation on a smaller tractor/tillage& seeding equipment. Currently we have 320 acres of dryland farm ground in the TX panhandle that we currently have farmed by a neighbor on a crop share basis. Our neighbor is getting older and is looking to cut back on the acreage he farms. After the next CRP signup there will only be 120 acres (which will soon be irrigated) to farm so I will not need huge equipment. In order to determine whether it makes economic sense for me to run the land I need some advice on necessary tractor and implement size (model and brand recommendations would be helpful) and expected price range. I do have a good outside job so I need to be able to work the ground in a reasonable amount of time. If anyone has any recommendations on implement size I would also be appreciative. If it will fit through a 12' gate it would be the best. All harvesting will be done on a custom basis. Thanks in advance for the advice.
