I read that planting after spraying glyphosate can be done after a day or two or three. Based on experience what is the minimum time you would wait before planting soybeans?

You need to spray 2 weeks before planting.

Two weeks to get a good kill, or so I don't kill my non RR soybeans from residue?

I made the mistake of spraying Roundup on some Sickle Pods in a field. I waited less than 1 week then planted Iron and Clays then irrigated. I got only handful of seeds that sprouted. Total loss of seed and fuel. Never had an issue when I waited 2 weeks.

IMO, the delay between spraying and disking is more to allow the grass and weeds time to decay so that disking and planting becomes much easier. Otherwise, you're constantly having to clean the grass out of your disk.

Whatever the spray hits is as good as dead within a day or two.

My regime is to mow the plot first, and then give it a couple of weeks to begin to grow back and allow time for the cuttings to decay. This ensures the leaves of the still growing grass and weeds will catch plenty of the spray, which is necessary for an effective kill.

A liitle liquid dish soap added to the spray mix helps the spray stay on the leaves better for a more effective kill as well.

different formulations of glyphosate have different restrictions so you should read the label of the brand you buy

many allow replanting as soon as one day as long is it is not mixed with something else

it gets locked up by the soil and becomes inactive very rapidly

the actual brand Roundup©®™ recommends to wait 7 days after spraying before mowing or cultivation, but that is to maximize trans-location to the roots of the targeted weeds not because of replanting concerns

that wait period will be especially important for weeds that spread with stolons or rhizomes

I always mix 2four-D with roundup and waiting 1 month before planting/discing. However I haven't sprayed nothing this year except feeder pins and I'm discing and planting in early May.

I'll bite, why mix 24D with glyphosate?
