Re: Soybean Planting
Yes, pintos would be similar to whites in that they don't get half as tall as soys. Nobody around here direct cuts dry edible beans, it's all windrowed with a one step cutter/windrower and then combined about 7-10 days later. We dammer dike all our row crop pivot ground so that would be a tillage pass through the field. I guess that technically isn't no-till but minimum till. Just not sure how to make it all work with putting on fertilizer on and putting chemical on as well. Standard practice here is to incorporate a pre-plant herbicide with a field cultivator but I'm trying to figure out ways to reduce the tillage in our bean fields. As far as I know, there are no roundup ready edible bean varieties. Anybody plant soys directly into short wheat stubble?
