Eastern Shore of MD

Yes we plant them early - goal is to get them planted in April to try to shorten them up.
We drop around 130,000 with a 15" row planter w/ row cleaners. Would go lower if could guarantee a final stand of 100K or more but you get a year like last where we dropped 130 and ended up with a final stand in the 70's We elected not to replant and they yielded in the low - mid 80 field avg which even though it was an off irrigated bean year for us, was still was our best field avg. We plant them mostly full season Irr but do also plant on better dryland.

Word of caution - they will most likely lodge. Have cut more of them one way than any other variety but it is worth it with the yields we are getting. Have not yet found any other variety - plenish or not- that will yield with them.

My email is good if you need more info.
