    I plan on trying the mow and spray method in my destination food plot with brassicas. My original plan was to overseed the RR soybeans I planted in the spring with brassicas when the soybeans start to yellow. But unfortunately I was unable to make it out and spray the field over the summer and the weeds have overtaken. The field is still full of soybeans that are stunted from all the weeds. So I guess my question is: Can I spray field WITHOUT mowing so I don’t destroy soybeans and come back and broadcast seed? Or do I just give up on the beans, mow, spray, then plant?

      Hi Shaun – I didnt see this right away. How tall were the weeds? I would spray the field and broadcast the brassicas into the dead thatch. My thatch was 18″ tall and worked great.

      What did you end up doing? Shoot me a message on FB for any other questions 🙂 THank you for listening.
