I am a few counties east. Beans planted after rye are risky, but the last few years have paid well. Figure on no beans if things are really dry, maybe 20-30 on average and 40+ if it is wet. If conditions are good, they need planted ASAP after your rye. I believe penn state says a bushel or more penalty per day. RR works well, may need some first rate mixed in. I like NK s36.

How does the maturity work? What happens if you plant longer maturing beans too late in the year?

Maturity is different in beans than in corn. Corn requires a certain amount of heat units- period.

Beans get ripe, more or less, by the changes in day length. Full season in my neighborhood is 1.8-2.6. Anywhere in there works. The last time I did some short season, such as you would be doing, I was told to use a 2.0-2.2. I was told the short season planted late would be VERY short and hence hard to combine.

Making sure soil potash levels are good is also helpful in bean production.

No-tilling behind the combine is your best option. Beans can be grown in solid stand or rows- in my neighborhood we see everything from 7 to 36 in rows.

Northern beans react to the days getting shorter, and so they kinda shut down naturally, not like corn, they react to the sun.

This shows up if you are next to civilization and street lights hit your beans, they keep growing and never get ripe.....

Shorter season beans can do better in a short season, but still are more controlled by the position of the sun.

A longer season bean planted in mid summer will not yield as well, and might get froze off and beans stay green. But it isn't like corn with a set number of days for each type of bean.

The shorter season ones will do better in a short season, but the long season ones will likely work out too, just not as good in that short time frame.
