Subject: RE: Continuous Soybeans

Yep. Lots of continuous beans around here. They just plain pencil out better. They yield more consistently than corn, they're cheaper to put in, and they're easier to haul away (which matters when you're hauling them 120 miles one way).

I wouldn't ever want to do the 10 year in a row thing, but our normal rotation is 2 years of beans and 1 year of corn. We farm mostly bottom ground so we don't have to worry much about erosion, but we do put cover crops on the hill ground. We use liberty on the beans and roundup on the corn so we are switching up chemicals. The beans yield about the same, no matter if the field was corn or beans the year before, but we do fertilize every year.
