Our corn and beans are coming up great and should really take off with the good amount of rain we have had recently. This year we are trying a new innovative product from Gallagher fence – a 3 strand, 2 tiered low electric fence that keeps deer out. On a couple of our farms we have extremely high deer densities and have never been able to successfully grow soybeans…until now. Fortunately we were able get the fence up right after the beans germinated and before the deer could get to them. The results are already impressive!
You can already see that the beans outside the fence are getting demolished and probably do not stand a chance, while the beans inside have received zero browsing pressure and should grow to be huge pod producing plants!
