Soybean Suggestions
I am going to plant some soybeans as part of my food plots. I have settled on RR beans, but was wondering if anyone has suggestions as to the type. Last year, the deer literally ate a 3 acre field to the ground. Does anyone know of a bean that recovers a little better from browsing, or alternatively, one that has a longer season?

Get a bean within group 4 any number starting with 4, 4402 , 4702, they are the longer season bean and when they are eaten, they might not recover at all.but that is why you are planting them , for deer to eat , right ?

RE: Soybean Suggestions
it takes a big field to keep them from eating them all befor they are big enough to last.once they get 1' tall they will last pretty good.

You probably will need to put an electric fence around a small patch like that to give the beans a head start.

RE: Soybean Suggestions
When did you plant the Soys last year?

It seems like the deer let them be - a bit longer - if you plant them early - like late May for me.

When I plant soys late - they become tender young growth - when everything else has been green a while - and the deer cannot leave them alone.

Plant early if you can - 3 acres - 40 lbs/acre should be able to take alot af grazing.
