Work till level and smooth and pick all rocks up. Then pack tightly, should just barely be able to see your show print when walking on the ground. More stands fail because of a improper seed bed than anything else.
Can be drilled or broadcasted on. If broadcasting roll with a packer. Have done both but prefer using a drill.
