    planted 3 acres beans on 5-13. went up 5-20 to plant 4.5 more acres. the first ones did not come up. I think the heavy rains crusted the ground over, any ideas on a solution for this?

    When I planted mine it took them more than 7 days to come up; I think it was right around 9 days and they were just starting to sprout up. You might try checking them this weekend if you can. :cheers:

    my BIL is going up this weekend and he will check them. Last year I had beans up in 5 days so it has me a little worried. Hopefully you guys are right.

    I've not sown any yet either. These cool temps have had me abit concerned about soil temps. Low soil temps and plenty of moisture can rot seed.

    Soil temps have not been very high until the last week. They need warm ground to grow. Doubt there's many farmers been planting beans before the last week or so.

    Wait a few days, and then if you see a few and they are real bent and having a hard time, see if someone has a rotary hoe that will break that crust.

    I got home from the lake this weekend and my BIL said there were some beans coming up as of sat. I hope this rain we had may have softened the crust up and the rest of them can break thru, I may try to run up tomorrow and see how they look and see if the ones I planted at the other place last week are coming up.

    Like mentioned above.. I would not get to concerned till later in the week or so........ beans can survive a lot and a small amount of crust if minor when they all gang up on a piece of dirt........ :cheers::cheers:

    I got my beans in the last weekend of April. Was there this weekend and most of the beans were 2-4" tall.

    I went up yesterday and they are coming up pretty good thanks to the rain. The ground was muddy and alot of them were just starting to pop up after 2 weeks. The 4 acres I planted last week at the other farm were coming up good as well.:claphands:

    I had some I sown last friday and they were coming up yesterday. As far as the soil temps, we were having volunteer beans sprouting in late April, course that was here in StL Co. I was hoping we didn't get a late frost and we didn't. :claphands:
