You should have no problem drilling into kochia stubble. Other weeds with heavier stocks may be a problem though. Knowing that kochia seeds will be in the soil from last year, you may want to wait until they green up in late winter/early spring and spray them prior to drilling the grass seed. Weed control prior to seeding will help reduce competition for the grass seedlings to grow. Be sure to read the label, often you will need to wait two weeks after spraying to plant grass seed.
