What size tractor do I need for 20 acres? I'm new to this and primarily want to plant corn and beans. What sort of horsepower am I going to need?

Great question.
Do you plan running pto for attachment if so horse power rating drops also hydro. transmission....30hp good start.

If your running a planter and cultivating field, would suggest starting at 75-100 HP. Its all dependent on what you are doing.

For comparison:

A 30 horse tractor is fine for example running a brush hog over 20 acres. Bigger attachments need more HP.

Hay over 20 acres - 50 minimum, 75 suggested.

Property maintnance - clearing a trail, utility use 30 is fine
