This is a photo of my food plot during the tilling process 2 weeks ago. I am planning on planting fall soy beans. To this point I feel like I have made all the right moves. I have been patient in planting this plot due to the extreme drought we are experiencing here in Indiana. A month ago I sprayed highly concentrated roundup/water mixture. 2 weeks ago I tilled up the quarter of an acre food plot. This past weekend I put down 12 12 12 fertilizer and lime. In the last 2 weeks we have had less than a half inch of rain - we are getting some dew at nights. Here are my questions: 1. Is the first weekend in August too late for fall beans? How long can/should I wait before planting? I am kinda waiting on the forecast to change, but historically we don't get a lot of rain in the month of August in Indiana so my hands are tied. 2. What is the best way for me to get the beans an inch or so below soil? It has been suggested to me to put a piece of chain linked fence behind a 4 wheeler and drag it. Will this work? Good idea? Bad idea? Better ideas? I am struggling with the 2 questions above - I don't want to make a mistake at this point in the process that will cost me a food plot. If nature doesn't cooperate then that's just the way it goes, we can't do anything about that - but I want to do everything in MY power to make sure it is successful. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you all!
