    i have a very small maybe 1 acre plot. I need to put out something in there and i was thinking beans. This place doesnt hole alot of deer during the summer, but when it comes to rut its a hot spot. How much should i put down and can i broadcast beans?

    depends if you want RR Beans or no RR Beans... call your local MFA they come in a variety of prices.. someone will come on here pretty quick I'm sure to tell ya more than I know.

    you know someone who is planting beans? might see what they say.

    Not if you actually have a full acre. An acre is alittle over 43000 square feet. Foodplot beans will get 70% of their use for forage,,so alittle heavy shouldn't hurt a thing.
