Just drug the cultivator through one of my plots this afternoon, ground didn't work too bad.  Need to do my homework tonight and figure out my plan for all the plots this year.  I'm thinking I'll sow chicory in the one I worked today, it had Powerplant in it last year.  Might shift gears though and do some clover.  Having the two-seed capability that you have on that rig would definitely be useful.

Well I keep forgetting to take a picture of it, but I did get to use it a couple weeks ago to plant soybeans and hit some weak spots in my clover plots.  when you actually look at it and see it in person you can tell right away the thing is built like a tank and fairly compact which I like since there are some tight spots getting to one of my clover plots deep in the timber.  It worked quite well considering how wet the ground was when I planted my buddy's plots and mine, his were flat ground and mine is east sloping hill so mine was drier then his.  Got everything planted by saturday at 4 so everything has been in the ground a week and got basically 3 days of off and on rain from monday through wednesday.  now its heating up so conditions are perfect growing weather.  Will be excited to check out my stand but am thinking will be good.  seeded the beans at around 80 to 90 lbs per acre.

I do ag beans. My neighbor works at a fertilizer seed plant and hes the main seed guy there so he gets me some free bags of last years plot seed that he cant sell and normally would just get thrown away, cant beat the price and then I can spray with roundup during the year to keep it clean.

perfect. that's a win win. RR beans are nice

do you figure 50-60% germination on year old beans? i got some year old forage beans that were terrible last year. almost no germination. but, they were stored in a hot shed. i think that was the main problem. i think he cooked them

good luck

they say the germ goes down on them after a year and maybe it does but last years bean plot looked like a good solid stand that any farmer would be happy to have in their field. not to say some didnt germinate but I would guess I still had a 90 to 95% germ.
