We got 2.7 acres of beans in this week. Hope to have another 3 this weekend. Also are trialing a mix of lablab, corn, beans and oats that a buddy had a bag of. Will put it head to head against the soybeans and right on the field edge to see if the deer walk through this blend to get to the beans. We are also planting 1/4 acre of ground hog radishes as a trial. I am sticking them in an inconvinent place for the deer to get at to test their attractiveness.
15 acres of vidals for my 4 legged friends. Will redo some fields in Aug for fall attractivenss plots and add another acres of killing plots. I also plan to test a radish, rape, and turnip mix in July. Brassicas have been getting absolutely destroyed on my farm these past two seasons. This year I want to expand them to 2 acres to see if I can get them to grow. This should be the first year ever where the deer had more to eat than what they physically can. I am hoping it pays big dividends this fall.
It is fun playing around non the less.
