Would have been in the 1990's. Plowed some corn. Never did plow beans but maybe once or twice, as I grew mostly narrow row or no-till soybeans. Now, tobacco was something that I plowed at least 4 or 5 times each year that I raised it, which was about 30 years.

late '80s or early '90s still had a four-row mounted cultivator. on a 706 fast hitch. you know the cultivator mounted to the side of the front of the frame of the tractor between front and rear wheels and had a thing that just kind of covered your tracks it in the two-point hitch on the back but hey at least it was hydraulic. I can remember dad talking about using the two row on a John Deere B that you actually had to hand crank it up at the end of the rows.

I was on a 3020 with a 6 row and my bosses stepson on a 4440 with a 12 row running through Milo. Be around 1998 when we were in high school.

The 80's and 90's for field corn, milo, and cotton with a 4440 and rear mount cultivator.
I still cultivate my garden with my grandfathers JD H and 2 row cultivator but usually can just plow one row at a time since I plant with an old 1 row planter.

Not beans or corn, but I keep a set of cultivators on my '49 Cub, for plowing the peas in the garden every summer.

Sometime in the late 80s
If we still had to cultivate I wouldn’t farm

We did ridge-till for a while 25 years ago. Really hill up corn and soybeans with a heavy built cultivator at lay by time . Saved the ridge and planted on it the next spring. It was like a modified no-till system. This system only worked well on flay ground . Only drawback was wet summer you couldn’t get your ridges built. We were big time for awhile using a 16 row cultivator. Now the above entry big sprayer and more no till.

The late 1960's was the last time I did it. I joined the Army in 1973 and when I came back the place was in hay. We still have the cultivator setting in a back pasture. It was mounted on a Super M the last time it was used.

We still have a few small irregularly shaped pieces of ground that are farmed with ridge till irrigation.

Mid to late 70's I guess. Before I got out of high school in 1979. 2 row cultivators mounted on a Farmall H. Cultivators are still here but the tractor was traded a long time ago.

Probably the late 60's. 2 row cultivator, 8N Ford with the wheels set out. Had to have stabilizer bars on the 3 point lift arms to keep the tool on the rows. I liked the rotary hoe better, you could go faster.
