Work it up and plant soybeans. Do not cultipack. Early August sow with brassica. If you have the ability to cultipack at that point, the beans will pop right back up. Fertilize with triple 19. Good luck, it will work.

I have a low deer population. Deer pretty well mow my beans down as the summer goes on opening up the canopy for the later planted brassica. Beans feed them in the summer but will be turning yellow by mid October if planted right now. From my experience you will need at least a couple acres to get them not maturity but it may require more in a higher deer density area. Brassica is allowed to grow until beans yellow allowing double plotting on the same ground without the plot being vacant.

Is the farmer done spraying for the season? Drift will wipe out your brassica if he has one more spray planned. Wait until after the last threat of herbicide application.
