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.
