Winter Linseed is coming towards end of flowering and I now have a pretty blanket of pink fumitory flowers starting to appear above the crop. Just wondering if anybody has had any success spraying it out at this late stage? If so, what product and is it cost effective?

General consensus seems to be that there is nothing that will do the job at this stage. Worringly, the crop had two applications of an SU that the fumitory has survived, along with a fair bit of runch and charlock. It seems that every "break crop" has its problems, particularly as I was looking to replace OSR with more Linseed, for obvious reasons!

Broad leafed herbicide options in linseed are seriously limited. In the past Chekker and HBN would clear everything up cheaply. New label Chekker doesn't have the EAMU and bomoxynil is going. Premium Crops' website has a useful set of agronomy bulletins on linseed husbandry where weed control is discussed at length.

Have had good experience from farmer mixing Eagle and Maya, apparently nuked it.
MCPA sadly cannot get approved. The french have MCPA approved for Flax, however it doesn't go into the animal food chain, so we could not get this product. No seed residues= no EAMU sadly, same goes for Chekker :(
