Back in Glos and Winter Beans
The current rainfall is not helping anyone with harvest.
I went to look at a clients winter beans crop to see how things were progressing. This block of 70 ha of Tundra is relatively free of weeds.
The herbicide programme consists of
Pre planting Glyphosate
Pre em herbicide
Post em herbicide for Cleavers
Post em herbicide for grasses
Pre harvest glyphosate
A total of £101.00 / ha
The crop will be “last to cut” and with this wet weather the weeds down the tramlines are going to have grown well by the time the combine arrives.
Pre harvest glyphosate means we can easily turn this field around and back into the next crop, 1st year winter sown wheat.
