What is chisel plowing?

A general rule of thumb is that you need 1 HP for each inch of moldboard you are pulling (at least, more is fine).
No. Pulling a 2X14 moldboard plow will require close to 30 PTO HP and over 20 drawbar HP in good ground and much more of both in many grounds. The tractor will also need to be properly set up for plowing, e.g., AG tires, ballast, etc.
How much horsepower does a moldboard plow need?
A general rule of thumb is 1 HP for each inch of plow. So a 2-12 would need about 24 HP. You could pull a 1-16. A 2-12 would depend on soil condition with your tractor.
In most cases the H is a 2 plow tractor.
The correct way to size a plow is to measure the distance from the heel of the landside to the wing of the share (Figure 4). A 16-inch moldboard plow, properly mounted, cuts a 16-inch furrow. Three 16-inch bottoms mounted on the same frame will plow a 48-inch width.
