Default Soybean ??? for LARGE LAD

The forage soybeans you sell, do they still produce beans??

I want soybeans for the beans in the late season not really the leaves in the spring. I saw the pictures on QDMA and just loved the hieght of those beans.

Also could you explain the new plant your coming out with Deer Thicket I think was the name??

Default RE: Soybean ??? for LARGE LAD

Yes they do, the forage types are bred for more aggressive growth. Leaf size is much larger, height is much taller, and overall tonnage is higher. Seed production is about 75 to 85% of the highest yielding in our plots. Our field production was closer to standard soybean yield. Early season growth advantages are higher browsing tolerance and quicker canopy. Height advantage eliminates the need for corn if you are looking forseclusion plots. Deer can bed down in the taller soybeans earlier in the year. Illinois is not too far north from northeast Arkansas and seed production will be later for you, allowing for a longer growing season. The new Whitetail Thicket is a Roundup Ready viny, climbing soybean. The wild type of soybean is viny. Every branch creates a runner and can climb other plants. I have it with our forage types, some earlier blends, and with corn. It needs support to get tall. I have it climbing corn over 6 feet tall now. It is also late maturing and will continue to grow once the corn starts drying down allowing sunlight into the lower canopy. The old Quail Haven and Bobwhite varieties were non-roundup ready, viny types. Some believe they are more tolerant to browsing. Our RR version was crossbred onto our RR forage type and has much larger leaves and biomass per plant. For the extreme north, we have a blend of three different maturing soybean varieties to ensure seed production. Hope this answered your question.
