I think I posed this question on here before but thought I would put it out there again b/c I'm actually trying it. I am gonna plant a mid group 5 maturity soybean in NE MO. We do this at work for a educational demonstration and the beans never mature so I was thinking that I could have some big green soybeans probably until the end of october. I'm hoping the deer will nail them all fall but we will see.

Anybody else think this will work?

I sure hope it does...I'm planning something along the same lines.

Just hope we get enough rain to get them going strong

sounds like a great plan. I have seen heavy frost the 1st of
Oct before that might put a damper on your plan. In your tests at work do the group five start some type of maturing
process with the shortening of the days or the amount of
sunlight. Let us know how it works .

rmr....yeah a real early killing frost will definitely put a hamper on things but it would have to be a heavy one. They do go through a maturing process as far as developing pods but do to their developmental cycle they never progress through leaf loss and dry down process before late in the fall when I usually just brush hog them down.

The only thing with planting a bean that late is you won't get much growth out of them. The beans I am planting should get darn near waste high. I just hope they dont' get too untasty to the deer.
