I am by no means saying that plotspike isn't any good cause I have never tried it but the coating on the other seed brands are an innoculant which promotes growth for a better stand and yield in legumes. Basically it is like a fertilizer attached to the seed you can read about it [link=(http://www....

Wheat doesn't dry out your land the foliage actually helps retain it and if you think it's putting your beans behind schedule just pick them at about 18 percent moisture and have them dried. Or try a faster maturing variety. To the OP realistically shoot for 150 to 200 net per acre if you are wantin...

Last year I planted some sun hemp to put nitrogen back in the soil. The deer absolutly loved it and I was able to plant my ryegrass for grazing without having to add nitrogen.

Is your goal to kill everything down to bare dirt? The test for the license isn't that bad just keep records of what you sprayed, application rates, and where you sprayed after you get it. I got audited a couple months ago and my record keeping isn't that great but they let me slide. Damn near like ...

You can't go wrong with the 6105d it's a solid tractor. I have Ferguson and John deere and just unloaded a MCcormick. The john deere's have been more reliable than the Ferguson. The mccormick was a total lemon. If i had to chose right now with the new tractors out there I would seriously look at the...

I buy from the stockyards close to here some said earlier in the thread about bacteria and disease but I vaccinate right out of the trailer and feed medicated feed for the first month.

I think one of the best options right now is to buy young heifers and raise them to breeding age. You can buy small heifers cheaper than steers (400 to 600 pounds). Raise them to around 900 pounds breed them, and hang on for about 6 months after breeding, and sell as bred replacements. That is kind ...
