Ryan Nell Experiments With Very Early Planting

BY david | April 3, 2018 - 

Nell of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin recently planted 4.5 acres of soybeans on a field that was corn silage last fall, then drilled cereal rye in early October and strip tilled a week later. On March 23, Nell planted 2.4 maturity beans at 2 to 2.5 inches in perfect conditions and a soil temperature of 51 degrees. He calls it “high end research with a high potential to fail”. We call it bold and interesting—and look forward to seeing how his experiment turns out at harvest.
