I sent off soil samples for the fall planting. Elbon Rye, Daikon radish and purple top turnips. I cant see any advantage to planting oats or wheat with Elbon rye. Seems the rye kills off the oats and wheat.

Arrest Max worked some, but a lot of ragweed looks to have not been touched. The deer are hammering the Beans/Peas pretty good too. Need some rain!

Arrest is just clethodim repackaged. It won't kill weeds, just grasses.

I see that now! Ragweed is tough. Anything else dampen the ragweed without killing the beans?

There may be, but I'm not familiar with it. I usually kill everything before I plant with roundup and then plant enough seed that the crop shades the weeds out. This year though I haven't had enough rain to grow crops, weeds, or grass.

When I plant beans, I go Roundup Ready, so you can just hit them with gly when the weeds get up good and you got nothing but beans left. Little more expensive but a time saver.

You might give the folks at Keystone Pest Solutions a call. They will know what you can use if anything. Deer will eat that young ragweed, but once it gets tough they'll quit it.

Oh, and you can buy clethodim much cheaper than Arrest.

Default Spring Food Plot....Getting it ready to plant.

My spring 1/2 acre plot of cow peas got infested with weeds but the deer are still hammering whatís left of it hard.
This is it about a month ago before we the weeds took over.



I planted 3 more plots of peas last week and the two smaller plots were in moist soil in the woods and sprouted with in 5 days!
This larger plot was in dry sandy soil and hadnít done anything yet but we got 1.5Ē rain yesterday. Itís should kick off good now and provide a hot spot come opening day!

Thanks for info. I'm definitely interested in the RR Beans. Had some Amazon Gift $ so the Arrest was Free
