    Thanks for the update!

    I wish we had as much success as you did. Our budget was closer to $10,000 so we ended up with a Redball 570. 90′ booms and 1200 gal pull type. We fought some mechanical and electronic issues early summer so we only got 1 application on this summer on our beans.

    We’ve been dry and the organic beans didn’t germinate well resulting in excessive weed pressure. We weren’t sure how much money to put into the crop given the condition it was in.

    But now we have things figured out and are ready to get some fall primer on and prepare for next year! I wish our budget would have allowed for a self propelled, but it will have to wait a few years I think. Our fields are spread out over 20 miles so some type of water tender will have to come next.

    Let us know how the program does on your beans once you get into the field!
