Ill be the first to say I love Eagle Beans, but you know how it is, Im always wanting to try other stuff and see whats out there.

My seed dealer had a product, "Trophy Beans" he called it, that is a Dyna Gro group 7 bean. So, I split a plot behind my house, half in Eagles and half in Trophy Beans.

---Planted May 5-28" row, no-tilled, both inoculated

---First Rain May 13 1.25 inches

---No measurable rain until July 4-They both looked awful, average 12" tall.

----August 1- We have had almost 2.25" of rain since July 4th
These were taken this afternoon

Both beans right now are the same size, with leaf width on the Eagles being slightly bigger, but not by much.

Both are flowering at this time, and the Dyna gro's being slighly more developed.

Problems----Marestail is awful in this plot. The front half of this plot is covered up with it and the difference in the beans is very obvious. They are not as tall, or as full. This plot has had two applications of gly mixed at 2 quarts an acre. The gly will burn the top 2 or 3 inches of the marestail, but thats it.
