is there any problem when using roundup to kill weeds in beans at desiccation timing if you were wanting to keep some back for seed ?

There's much discussion about glyphosate on seed. I wouldn't and it's illegal. If you must, make sure the beans are ripe before spraying. If you do them before they are ripe you will stop them germinating.

Thats similar to the local advice that we heard, was just wondering what the position was from a hypothetical postion

I see, you're asking for a friend!
asking for piece of mind, get so many differing opinions on the subject but the local people I would trust have said the same. it was hypothetical as rightly or wrongly we are letting our beans mature the way nature intended.

Pre harvest glyphosate on a seed crop is illegal for a reason. I'll state that again. I used Reglone in fields I wanted for seed but that option has gone unless you've got some in the shed that needs using.

Imazamox pre em (with pendimethalin) as Nirvana and bentazone post em when the brassicas are fairly small. That’s all we have over here I think. I’m not sure what you have access to in France.
