I understand what you boys are saying, and if you ask my landlords they will tell you that my practices are a whole lot better than the guys that farmed them before me. You don't get ground and keep it on my scale if you don't maintain the land. The last renter on one of these farms grew beans on beans for 10 years and never applied a granular of fert. Now you also have to remember that this is some tiger crap....clay it just doesn't have the yield potential to put on 200 dollars worth of fert and see it returned to your pocket book. It just will not work. It has only been in the last couple of years that anyone around here has even thought of applying bean starter. It is just different ground than you boys farm. I'm not upset and don't take it as such I like discussion without it we don't progress we flounder.

I can only dream of 50 bu soybeans, my high ph wet clay doesnt get along with beans so well. Topping over 30 bu is a good year sometimes.

200 bu corn is easy here tho, if you don't count the parts that flood out or the tops of the hills that burn up. (I like being honest and get 160 bu corn maybe 170 average, but the neighbors all swear the whole farm is 200 bu.....)

I've put in $10-25,000 of tile a year the past 4 years to try to get the wetness problem cut down some, we will see if mother nature wants to help out with the dryness now. :)

You can see why corn is king here.....
