Has anyone seen anybody putting in any beans north of the river in the last few days?
This will be my first time drilling some RR beans on some hill ground, didnt know if its a little early. Ground is around low 60's ,I think its suppose to be around 65. Turkey hunting in the morning then possibly drilling beans in the afternoon.

Good luck to all hunting this last weekend!!

its been pretty wet the last week or so but you can bet your butt as soon as the weather breaks farmers will be planting beans like crazy

about 20 percent of the beans are already in the ground in north missouri as of last sunday which is a bit behind last year but right in line with the average.

any time you can get them in now you should be ok as far as time goes who knows what is early last year i know lots of guys in central mo that had beans planted before corn????? i tend to think may 15 till the end of may is about best but some guys like to get them in earlyier in case it get dry

you guys are acting all scared. Beans are one tough dude and if its dry now I would not be scared one bit from planting. Heck, maybe I am crazy though b/c I got beans planted on April 17 that have there first trifoliate out. Honestly though, most Date of Planting stuff (central MO) that I have seen on beans here in Missouri show anywhere from late april to mid May will all yield the same and starting about the 20th of May you start losing yield. Now that is about 10 years of data averaged out but I would rather play the averages than try to out guess mother nature.

I used to push seed for GOLDEN HARVEST..with the wet cool weather I'd say let the ground dry up a good bit & possibly warm up too..that Sudden Death can suck ..no harm tho if its jus food plot plantin tho
