I talked to the farmer yesterday that has cotton planted on my lease. In the corner of many of the fields there are cleared areas for use in the harvest season to stage trailers and equipment. He said he does not really care what I plant and that I am not going to hurt his crops at this point. He said to just keep in mind during the few days he harvest these field he will have equipment parked on these spots and it may tear up the plot. My question is, if he is going to be treading on the plots in the middle of October is it worth planting those areas or should I avoid them all together? They are perfect little spots with good locations and the ground is prepared already.

I would. Sounds like all you need is a little seed and fertilizer. They will damage some of it but they are not going to get it all.

That's a call on your part please keep in mind that there is a lot of turning ,loading , peeing ,pooping , lunch eating , fueling , mechanic work , cigarette smoking with butts on ground, going on a smaller ag tractor can weigh in at 17,000 pounds I know one of mine will basically work up dirt if if turn the wheel tight with just the tread and weight etc. I guess what I'm saying is if you do I'd plant something cheap . Feed wheat perhaps just my opinion
