    Those of you that have put in CP42 plantings what's your recommended method of establishment??

    Can I broadcast in last years cut beans? FSA says everyone tills then drills.....:(:(:(:(:(

    This is very clean ground and the crop ground was virtually weed free in the past.

    Broadcast then culti-pack or no-till drill. Both work great.

    Broadcast asap...May still get some freeze and thaw with near term forecast. Would be best though if cultipacked alone or after light shallow till with a drill or disk but make sure not to get seeds over about 1/4" or Will do more harm than good!

    Do not till. It will just encourage weeds. I would be getting out there real early on a hard frost and broadcast until it gets greasy. Depending on where you are, we basically have freeze/thaw in the forecast every day and that is all you would need.

    I have no tilled hundreds of acres of pollinator mixes the last few years with great success also. Just be mindful not to plant too deep! I use cylinder stops on the cylinders for a reference and dont run the drill all the way down. Just 'scratch' the seed in. I have also been known to pull a few seed tubes if early in the spring and moisture wont be a problem.
