I'm planning out planting for Spring and what I can use to for planter and cultivator. Attached is my tractors wheel spacing (which is not adjustable).

The distance between rear wheels is 31", which I'm thinking would work well using a one-row cultivator as I can straddle the corn. Based on my drawing is this a good plan? Possible I could just up to even larger implements such a 3 or 4 row planter, and 2 row cultivator based on spacing and tractor's 47 HP? Am I missing any considerations here (my first time doing it).

Assumptions: I'll have the ground well tilled prior to planting and my sweet corn spacing can be set to somewhere between 28" to 36". thank you

Here in our part of the far north bush... We have not found any corn that will mature in our short end of zone 2 climate... So with that in mind, I do occasionally plant most any kind of corn I can get cheap to make some stage of fodder for our small livestock..

I have 24" between the tires of my tractor and 40" center to center of tires.. I have planted 2 rows of corn in that 24" space each about 3-4" off either side of center.. This grows plenty of corn.. Easily cultivated a time or 2 until it is too tall to go under the tractor... Then just let it do as well as it can do until cut, stalks and all..

Once when mature as it would get.. I went over it with the brush hog and raked up corn, weeds and all... Small livestock loved it..

Problem for us is.. Moose and bears like it also.. But then.. They are good eating also...
