Wanted to get the Dove Field thread started for this year. I enjoy reading about and seeing others fields. Due to upcoming time constraints we had to get the Dove Field planted earlier than normal. Mowed and Tilled Thursday and Friday and then Sprayed pre-emergence, Medal II EC Herbicide, and Planted the Clearfield Sunflowers on Saturday using the old John Deere 2 row corn planter with sunflower plates in it. Thankful for the rain today and the upcoming warm temperatures and additional rain in the forecast Planning to spray the field when the sunflowers are about a foot tall with the Beyond Herbicide and then come back a week later and spray with Clethodim. Right before season we typically let nature takes it course in lieu of any kind of burn down with a glyphosate. Before opening weekend we usually cut 1/2 the field anyway. Curious as to what others were planning for this year.
