00:00 Hey y'all, it's Chad Henderson with Extreme Ag and we going to talk about some double crop beans. You know, we, uh, we've tried a lot 00:06 of things over the last 10 years to really push the boundaries on these double crop beans. Everything from putting urea out, putting, uh, 00:13 28 0 0 5 out early, uh, prior to planting or well prior to emergence. How about that? There's a lot 00:19 of fertility things we've tried this year. We're diving deep into this hopper throttle from maim. It's done good so far in emergence. 00:27 It looks like it's getting a bean outta the ground faster than the other ones. We're definitely seeing a better root mass, so anything 00:32 to do that with is gets, gets us off to a good start. And when these double crops has gotta come outta the ground screaming, that's the whole point of it 00:39 because we know that the longer they're in the ground, then we're losing bushels a day. Yeah, that's right. I guarantee it's from half a bushel 00:46 to a bushel a day that you're losing every time this thing is in the ground and longer it stays. 00:51 So we got these planted. This is probably the earliest I've ever planted. These was planted May the 31st right here. 00:56 They come outta the ground pretty good. We've planted them in some moisture and then we got a good rain af behind it. 01:02 So we're expecting some good yields out of these, but the mare stem product has done well for us on that part of it. 01:09 So we'll keep you posted on this hopper throttle. We'll let you know how it turns out. 80 bushel bears. But we'd like to break, see if we can break 01:14 that 80 bushel barrel on double crops. Thank you.
