Do not start farming. Every farmer I talk to lost money every day of his life. There is no worse job than being a farmer. You will be miserable till the day you die. You would be better off flipping burgers at McDonald’s.
To be honest, in my community, most are only rich farmers, although they use old bad technologies such as ploughing
You have A LOT to learn......
Do you think those rich farmers are dumb?
You need to learn what works where YOU are. No til and organic on anything over 20acres here and you will be broke within two years. We have both no til and organic farms around us. Organic guys work their land and the no till guys (only two left and one is starting to work his land because of low yield. The other one has low yield but offsets the loss with other income. We are talking 50bu/ac less then conventional land work on corn)
Ploughing is NOT bad old technology. It's a tool that still has its place and time where it is the best option.
Knowing when and where to use each option is the biggest learning curve and no two years are ever the same.
