Just figured I would show a couple no till plots I did this year. The First was a rye and cover plot that I tilled and planted last fall. the clover did not come in hardly at all probably due to the fact that I used very old seed we had laying around. Two weeks before memorial day I sprayed the rye with gly and broadcasted a mix of clover and chickory, cultipacked and then just mowed it this weekend and was very impressed with the plot. The second plot was one I had corn and some brasticas last year and I didn't get to spraying early enough this year so the weeds got a little tall. Instead of going through all the steps because of not having a lot of time, I sprayed it on the 13th of June and then on the 17th. I broadcasted rr beans and a little bit of rr corn into the standing weeds and last year's corn stalks. after I was done I mowed it and packed it and theses are some pics of both. The beans probably had 50% germ on the 24th .

Yeah we have had a great year for rain. It was hard to get your plots in with all the rain. Sounds like it's too wet for a lot of people .
the cultipacker is one I built out of a old one I had around and a old canoe trailer...But it does work good, although I would like to add some more weight to it
