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...

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...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Getting into the cattle business - angus1838 on 3/13/14 at 1:07 pm|
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 ...

When I spray my pastures and they are wet I like to use a surfactant to help it stick to the leaves. I use a crop oil but just for a lawn I think you can use dish soap. Just Google the mixture it will help it stick. There are applications where I mix 24d and rind up but none of them apply to a lawn...
