Soybeans / Edamame
Does anyone have extensive experience with soybeans?
I'm having a heck of a time getting 2 of the 4 varieties to germinate. The ones that have germinated with no problem are 'Sunrise' and 'Mojo Green'. The ones I've had a dickens of a time with the last 2 seasons are 'Midori Giant' and 'Beer Friend'.
I know that the seeds are particularly susceptible to rotting. I've tried the innoculants, different substrates, etc.
My next thought is to perhaps put them on the surface of the soil. Please note these are inside starts.my thought is perhaps the seeds will germinate there. I can always add soil on top once they've germinated. I'm thinking of basically just putting them in contact with my moist seeds starting soil.
