Thanks for the quick response. Are farm is in iron county MO. I will most likely use soybeans in the five plots. How many pounds of soybeans do you recommend per acre? Also how much broadside blend per acre?


My land is so steep that I’m limited to how many acres I can plant. Deer tend to over browse the beans in my plots so I plant 80+ pounds per acre. This is less expensive than clearing more land and makes patterning deer easier.

I tend to plant 50 to 80 pounds of Broadside per acre, depending on how browsed the beans are by mid August.  

Enjoy creation,
