I mixed and sprayed a 50 to 1 garlic powder and Gly. on my soy beans. Beans are about 6" tall, but weeds/grass pretty heavy. Thought if I killed " 2 birds with one stone". What do yall think? Gonna work?

to keep deer from chowing down. Was actually wondering if garlic mix would minimize effect of Gly.

dish soap will be just as effective as garlic for keeping the deer at bay (until the first good rain), they don't like soap in the mouth just like you when growing up!

I hear garlic works for vampires, never heard of using it for deer. If you have small plots and high deer numbers, then soybeans are tough to grow.

I tried planting them and never got them to maturity. It's like candy on my plots. That being said I am trying about 2 acres of them this season, I have them in a "mix" with other food items. Hoping I can hide them a little or give the deer more options. We'll see.

Keep us informed of how that works for you.

LOL... It actually smelt pretty good. Bet folks from miles around could smell it too. Yes I put in about 2 acres of Eagle browse tollerant RR soys. If This doesn't work, I'll stick to clover/chickory and brasica/turnip in the fall.
