I've got several acres of soybeans that are on a sandy clay based type land that I planted with the grain drill. They were no till planted with the ground only being disked once early on behind a corn crop. We had another suprise big rain on the 3rd day after they were planted. So far about 30 percent have came up. The rest are mostly germinated and near the top of the ground, but it has crusted and packed over so hard they won't come through the surface. Today is the 12th day. Bean seed is in short supply here. Anyone had any luck running a rotary hoe behind drilling or just bite the bullet and hope to find enough seed somewhere to replant all of it ? I've run it over corn with mixed results but not behind a grain drill before.

Rotary home it...don't look back.....they need a bit of help to get through the crust. You won't lose any beans already up.

I would rotary hoe it. I ran the hoe twice over the organic beans after they were up. Yes, it will kick one out here and there but look at it like a battle and with every battle the good guys are going to suffer some casualties too.

I'd for sure try the rotary hoe. My uncle and cousin used to have to do that with dry edible beans a lot.

We're going to try to rotary hoe them as soon as we can dig it out of the archives. Been awhile since it's been run. Y'all have talked me into it. Lol. I guess it'd be better to go at just a slight angle to the row wouldn't it ?

We've always gone right down the rows, but in a solid stand like yours, it should make little difference

Make sure you take an oil can and squirt some on every one of the coil springs. Other wise I guarantee you will break springs.

We knocked the moth balls off of it and got started with it. I can't tell where it's hurt anything running it over what's already up. It's leaving it crumbled enough to where maybe the rest will come on through. Gonna have more to run over with it than I thought originally.

When I was still farming it was normal to use the hoe on EVERY acre of both corn and beans every year. Sometimes more than once. And did no no-till.

I ran it over right much of what I had
planted. Some of it we got most of a stand
except in bottoms where water stood from a
hard rain which is to be expected. Other
places it didn't help too much. Wound up
with about a 50 percent of a stand on
these farms.

There was a lot of dry beans replanted around here after all the recent rains.
