    So, I ended up getting roundup ready soybeans planted this year. How big does everyone think they have to be to get sprayed. I have heard 3 inches all the way up to 8 inches. They share acreage with what will be my brassica' s so I'm eager to do my final spray and disc up the remaining area so I can plant.
    What's everyone's opinion.

    Bean height or weed height?

    Weeds - get them before 4" if at all possible.

    Beans - through R2 (flowering)

    Up to 44oz an application.

    ^ For Roundup. Some generics may be more for application rate but nothing else changes.

    Well...didnt matter. I appreciate the advice but I killed the entire field today and in 10-14 days I'm prepping for my turnip and radishes. I missed my window and planted late...wont do that again.
    I hate pissing money away .

    They were RR but right after I planted we went a month with no rain and what few beans came up the deer ate. So out of necessity I killed the field and will be going to brassicas

    That blows man, had the same thing happen a couple of years ago. On the bright side at least your field is prepped for the next planting.

    That is the only consolation. We never go this long with out rain up here. There was a lightning and thunder storm last night and I was pumped....wake up this morning and the kids chalk pics on the driveway still loom perfect so guess the streak continues

    And down here in Oklahoma we currently have rain.. which makes for some wicked nasty humidity this time of year.

    It's been terrible here. The crops look like crap, the ponds and creeks are drying up and the grass has been brown for 2 months already. I suppose I lucked out because I didn't get anything planted in my plot this spring(typically soybeans). So, I'm working on prepping the plot for a fall planting. hoping for some rain though. This is the worst I can remember it ever being here.

    I'll be checking my plots and postings pics Thursday. We are getting prime growing conditions now.... Lots of sun and rain mix.
