Looking to clean up after winter feeding. Normally wait until fall, but with a late spring thinking of trying move it out manure yet this spring. Anyone have any experience/issues with the timing of applying manure on bean ground this close to planting?

If your hay, or pasture had been sprayed with any type of broadleaf herbicide (24d, grazon,ect) I would be cautions. Soybeans are extremely sensative to 24d. (Unless dicamba variaty)
I have heard of manure from pastures sprayed with grazon killing plants in peoples gardens. Not sure if it would be a problem or not.
Seems like 24d is a contact killer, but I know grazon has a residual

Don’t put 32 tons/acre of green manure on bean ground because from experience I can tell you beans won’t grow. Even if you plant them twice. Come to think of it corn won’t grow either but god at the turnips and mustard you can grow in the fall. Those suckers will look like tobacco plants.
