What are people doing this spring that didn't get the 2019 corn ground worked?

For conventional tillage guys like myself what are your plans for preparing unworked corn ground for plant20? Virticle till? Burning? High Speed disc? Notill? And are you doing certain things if you plan on doing beans after the corn or a corn on corn situation? I'm not a fan on burning and i can't on certain fields because of hog barns in the middle of them. I'm considering a high speed disc like a Great Plains Ultra disc to prepare for plant20.

Ive had this situation happen to me twice in central iowa in the last 7 years. Corn going to beans is easy. No till. Corn on corn much different. 1st time i bought a 40ft disc and disked them all in the spring and it worked out ok. Last year i vripped it all in early april amd i got lucky i feel. Yields turned out spectacular. My neighbor across the fence vertical tilled all his and was terribly disappointed this fall 30 to 40 bpa less than mine Corn on corn in my opinion you have to bury the stocks Vripping is risky and disking not so much so but you’ve got to do something aggressive.
