"Since you are my notill guru...I am starting to notill beans in today. Most of the field closed the trench decent. Some areas though, left some slot. shallowest setting... about an inch
Just running row cleaners for the heavy trash, rubber closing wheels
I can count the beans sometimes. I am not comfortable trying to really pinch the slot too hard. But they are calling for good heat the next 3 days, with a chance of rain Friday
(which is why I am trying to get beans in early enough to hit the heat and get a few days ahead of the rain.
Question is,,,, how necessary is it to get the seed trench closed for beans..
( I do like all the extra moisture I have compared to the till guys)"
Sorry I just got this email. Should be OK this early but normally like to see an inch of topsoil on top, same density above each seed. You will figure it out, beans will take a pounding but I don’t like to pound them in or pound the soil on top of them.
Bean planters rolling in Ohio and some haven’t even started corn.
It is amazing how fast the U.S, can plant a crop today. Something like half the U.S. crop was planted in one week last May.
How is your planting coming? How do you like to close the trench on corn and beans?
I am only showing corn today because I have not found any emerged soybeans.
