Finally got an electric fence up around my beans. Used a plotsaver for three years, but this year it was totally ineffective. So I bit the bullet and put up an e-fence. Never fenced in my life but I think it turned out okay.

The plotsaver ribbon remains to help with the visual.

Beans are browsed pretty heavy, but I think there are still enough left now that the browsing is eliminated. 6.6" of rain the last two days should help them take off.

What is the cost or that electric fence? What's the power source?

Cost not too bad as I already had the wire, post, and insulators. I had to purchase the turbo tape for the outer fence which was about $40. I also found a used battery powered Gallagher fencer for $90 on Ebay.

I'm guessing to give the beans a sporting chance before being completely demolished by deer browsing... unfortunately, not a problem we have here in Blount county.

Absolutely right Blount. Beans get hammered here early without some protection by the deer. And that's after killing ten off this farm last season. Now that every piece of ground around is being row-cropped, it seems our whitetail population has exploded.

I thought that soybeans were a "determinate" plant, and that growth stopped once the stems were broken off, ie. browsed. May very well be wrong, but that is what a farmer told me when we were considering planting them.

That is somewhat true I believe. What I have noticed is that if the plant is browsed down to just bare stem with no foliage left then that plant is done. However, if a leaf or two is left these eagle beans will take off growing again.
