This was my first year trying soybeans and have tried a couple different techniques. I decided on eagle seed managers mix and though it is a little pricey it's germinated well and the deer are loving it. I tilled a spot and planted it by itself and mixed it with corn. The beans that aren't sheltered in the corn are just over my ankles and are getting hammered. Some of them have been over browsed but overall I think they'll last into hunting season. The beans in the corn however are knee high and much thicker. I also planted some that I mixed with oats. They are taller than the plain beans but definitely not as sheltered as in the corn. The other planting I just no till thatch planted. I did that planting 2 weeks later than the first and it's slower germinating but the thatch layer has let them get a couple inches with protection. All of the seed was broadcasted.
I planted about 1 acre if I remember correctly. I put up electric fence for a while until it got established. That year was a great year weather wise for growing. Can't find what I paid exactly but this is the website. https://www.tyroneforagesoybeans.com/buy-now/
