Subject: The Dumbest Idea You'll Read Today

West Central Illinois
It's always fun to day dream crazy ideas, I'm curious enough on this one to ask for NAT thoughts on the following for heck of it,

Herbicide is sounding like it is going to be extremely expensive. Soybean seed will be a little higher, but nowhere near the jump of chem. With time not a factor of getting a crop in, and with mostly flat square(ish) fields. What if a guy with his 3600 12/23 splitter, planted his usual 15" soybeans in his usual crop angle at half rate, then came back at a 30 degree, or other angle. How much quicker could that canopy. You would get the excellent seeding performance of a planter vs a drill, get a better more uniform stand, and not be guaranteed, but have a possibility of cutting your herbicide cost with an efficient timing and product mix.

Go ahead and roast me ;)
