Do you spray premerge,and cultivate then. What size rows? When you take them in to the coop,how much more do they give you for them?

Steve I don't spray any thing cause I am organic. What I do is lightly disc weeds maybe a time or two before planting. After I plant I wait a couple of days then I rotary hoe them and about twice a week until they are up in fair shape, then I cultivate nice and slow the first time with curtains on cultivator then cultivate as needed to stay ahead of the weeds. this is on 36 centers.

Dad didnt have a rotary hoe, so used the harrow. Angle the teeth back 2 notches from max, and if the ground starts cracking above the seed row, go harrow. You got 12 hours, don't waste them, if you don't use chemicals you need to be on top of the game right? ;) once the crack opens and green of the beans is showing, you ding them up bad with a harrow. Too early with the harrow and the weeds get a second chance. Timing is everything.

Organic beans wouldn't be so bad: don't know that I would be up to organic corn again in our short growing season. The last 5 years I've been planting corn in ground so cold the weeds haven't sprouted yet, would be hard to go back to waiting another 2-3 weeks before planting to wait out the weeds....

Got up to minus 1 degree today. At least the wind is down, was 12 below last nite after the 36 mph winds..... Spring will come won't it?

what general area are you? There are places that pay a premium for conventional, but they are far and few, cgb in Clayton Ia is one. They are almost strait across the river from me, if only I had a longer auger!
