We have been doing some of that lately when we plant soybeans in July after a vegetable crop but we usually spread wheat or barley,

I would expect no yield loss in soybeans.... however, you will struggle to combine dry soybeans because the rye will likely hold moisture. We are probably in a warmer climate but generally spread the 1st or 2nd week of Oct than harvest the soybeans early November.

We are usually cutting 1-2" of the green cover with the soybeans but with a draper have no trouble. I have given up on cutting dry soybeans in this situation but IMHO the advantages of the cover over winter outweighs wet soybeans.
