Horsch Sprinter - Fodder Radish

Bit of an experiment - drilled some fodder radish in late May after failed OSR, has established really well, and now a perfect seedbed to drill straight into - fodder radish is about 1.2 m tall, just starting to pod. If I glyphosate now, would a sprinter drill Wheat straight in to the standing crop in october, or is there too much biomass there to block the drill? I know weather and moisture at drilling will be a big factor. Do I spray off with Kyleo rather than straight glyphosate to curl the plants and put them down a bit, or will this risk tangling and blocking the drill more?

Very interested in this as have a cover just emerging with radish in (amongst others) to sow with oats in spring with sprinter. Any chance of a picture?
