Soil and Spirit Acres Land. You and I like land. Otherwise I would not be writing this, and you would not be reading this. Land needs to be productive. It needs to farm efficiently. It is a lot better if it isn’t likely to wash away or blow away. In this part of the world, it is also a plus to have a good pond (or tank, as they would say in Texas). Why? Well, because our farming enterprises and ranching enterprises in this part of the world often overlap. Think winter and spring wheat pasture. Think hybrid sorghum, such as haygrazer. The list is longer than this, but you get the idea. Most of our “crops” have a cattle grazing element to them either as a primary or secondary enterprise.
About 80% of this place is a large field of mostly Ford Silt Loam. This is Class II land. Another 12% of the land is comprised of Tillman/Foard Soils and Tillman/Hinkle Soils. There soils have 1% to 3% slopes. Finally, there is about 7% of the land that frequently floods. This is where the two ponds are located. To me it seems that approximately 15 acres of the non-cultivated acres could be cropland or planted to Bermuda grass. Either change would, in my opinion, enhance the property. I believe the benefits of doing so would exceed the cost.
In this area you will want your land to be good enough for cotton, wheat, sesame, grain sorghum, and other small grains. Canola grows here, too. This is a nice place, and it is for sale. If you could use it, give me a call. This is a place that can be upgraded without prohibitive cost. It is definitely a plus to have a place with upside potential!
