Hi all I have been growing Soybeans in east central Saskatchewan for around 6 years now and one thing I have noticed is beans really like shelter from the wind. The beans this year by shelter are twice as tall and have more flowers than the plants in the open field. Does anyone have any experience with providing shelter for the crop. I seen a trial in the states where farms are planting strips of corn in the bean field the corn is getting more sunlight and the beans are getting more heat. the problem with this is corn won't mature here. Has anyone tried anything else? My thinking is it might speed up maturity and increase yield.
