    I wish I could offer some hope, but the whole thing sounds wrong. I guess I'd start over -- in mid to late August.
    The only thing I am planting now is soybeans.

    And, so what do you do four weeks after you plant...six weeks after you sprayed....when the new, emerging weeds start to dominate?

    Good! That'll work! Remember, if you let the weeds get tall, you're gonna need to cover a lot more leaf surface area. A quart of glyphosate and 25 gallons of water per acre is the ticket!

    There's nothing you can spray on that mix tht will kill "weeds" and not what you planted. 2,4db will kill chicory, radish, and other brassicas. It's mostly for use on clover.

    I'm assuming we're talking about roundup ready or glyphosate resistant beans? My preference is to spray them later rather than sooner. Let the plants hide in the weeds. it makes it a little...

    You will get no benefit this fall from an August planting of clover.

    Neither option is going to get you the benefits you want. Altalfa/Clover takes a year to really be effective. I wouldn't buy standing beans either. Too expensive. There will be enough harvest loss...

    That's a tough one. The concept of so much insecticide in 100 gallons of water is written that way because of the variable size of trees, We spray corn and it's all about the same size- the same...

    What do you have to lose? That's the thing. I don't know. If you're asking if there's a 100% chance you will be successful, then no. Don't plant it now and don't ever think about planting it in...

    Sure. Why not. I think you'll still battle weeds. Give buckwheat any consideration? It's got a root system on it that will help keep the soil pliable and be thick enough to prevent weed growth. ...

    Weeds will determine your height. Cut just enough to allow sunlight to reach the clover. Cut short enough to get the seed heads off the weeds. If you can, leave the clover tall enough to self seed.

    The effect of lime is almost immediate! By that I mean you will get a quick and significant boost in soil pH. Getting it where you want it, yes, will take some time. If you tilled in the lime it...
