    Beans and RR corn. here are some pics from the the Farm.

    Looks great! Lotsa hard work there that will surely pay off this fall...:eek:

    Just curious.. did you add a surfactant or crop oil concentrate to the Select you applied?

    i used 16 oz of Select for 15 gallons and 2 oz of crop oil
    i sprayed betwenn 2-3 acres. I forgot to mention earlier but I also applied 6-24-24 to the clover even though it looks good now and I put ablut 400 lbs of 12-12-12 on the hill ground
    I know thats not strong enough fert for corn but I put it on
    oretty heavy so Im not sure what I have but I think it will
    work for the plots last year I did about the same and it worked.
