As a lot of crews cross the harvest finish line, eyes turn towards preparation for next spring. Ken walks through considerations for growers wanting to plant early beans in 2022. As the weather locally led to a lot of wet harvesting and wheel tracks/ruts, Ken recommends trying to fix those fields this fall to make sure it doesn’t hold you back from planting early next spring. If that is not an option than rotating those to your “normal” planted bean fields and switching fields without seedbed issues to be the early planted fields. He also recommends avoiding the group 14 PPOs in early planted bean fields, staying on top of winter burn down, and having discussions with retailers and suppliers so everyone has the same game plan for being ready to plant early beans.
