I'm figuring the plot is a little less than an acre once you take out the middle where the watermelons are. I Planted one 50 LB bag of beans, the plan was to put some RR corn in the mix but cooperseeds was out. The beans in the lower areas have started coming and we got some good rain over the past couple of days so the rest should pop up. I bought the plow for $450 new. I think I got a good deal on it \:\) In hard ground it will stop the bota if i'm running it to deep. I'll try to get some pics tomorrow.

They are coming up pretty good \:\)


The "rows" are from were the disc left a rut.






I'm new to roundup ready beans. When do I need to spray them and how strong do I want the mix?

probably would have been ideal to spray the heck out of that plot a couple times for the month prior to plowing.

Looks like a pretty good crop of morning glories mixed in with your beans. Those square shaped first pair of leaves make it easy to identify morning glories when they come up. I made the mistake of tilling in a couple of truck loads of dried but not composted horse manure in my vegetable garden 4 years ago, and I am still battling the morning glories (apparently horses love morning glories, and the seeds pass through their digestive tract intact).

You definitely want to spray before those morning glories flower and produce seed, unless you are comfortable with having them in that field forever. The good news is that if they do get established the deer love them, probably as well or better than your beans.

The beans are looking good, BTW. I may have to try some next year myself.

Tater, let all of the soybeans emerge and spray next week when the ground dries. Roundup Original Max or Weather Max at 22 oz. per acre or 32-40 oz. of Generic 41% Glyphosate. You can make more applications later as needed at any growth stage on RR soybean. Glyphosate will control big grass, but not as good on big broadleaves with one application. Glyposate has no soil activity, so it works best keeping it clean until canopy closure shades the ground. This is difficult in a poor stand with thin spots. Calibrate your sprayer to put out 10-20 gallons of water per acre for good coverage.

We had a problem with cocklebur's in this field so the morning glories would be considered a god send lol. I think the iron and clay kudzu errrr peas helped choke a lot of them out last year. Once the ground drys i'm going to hit with roundup and fertilizer.

For all those that own atv sprayers make sure drain the water out of them before it freezes :(. I had to replace the pump on mine. A 107 dollar lesson that I wont soon forget.

Here's a few pics of right before I sprayed, I didnt get to spray when I wanted to because of the busted pump so it is a little hairy.







I should be able to take some aftermath pics today.
