When you look at the cost of bean herbicides a couple of passes with an einbock begins to look very cost effective

Liberator and pendimethlin sprayed onto cereals in autumn with bean volunteers doesn't seem to touch the beans. Look healthy as. Often wondered if they would pod OK.

Not great for cleavers though, and not approved for beans. Presume there's a reason why not approved.

I sprayed out some volunteers and BG in one field, knocked the beans but are happily growing away now that was after 1.5ltr/ha glypho, seem to be like clover, quite hard to kill with a low dose of Glypho,

Slightly off topic but drilling wheat into ex bean land , I’ve sprayed out bg with glysophate but the volunteer beans seem to have shrugged it off.
Not worried I suppose they can be knocked out in the spring ?
but my thoughts with fert prices as high as they are , why would we want to knock them out in the autumn at all ? Would they fix any nitrogen over winter ? And prove an asset more than a pest?

No. They will fix nothing over winter and will only shade out and BG if you're thinking of spring grassweed sprays. If not then they're not doing much damage, and tbh there's nothing really good to kill them in winter anyway.

Yup. But when we used it in spring, I'd want the beans gone before they shaded the BG come march.
Probably wouldn’t work this year as the blackgrass is so late coming but in a ‘normal’ year when we used to spray Atlantis in the autumn it would do both jobs quite nicely. I guess September drilled stuff you could go now with it but then I bet most beans into wheat didn’t get drilled in September with the late bean harvest this year 🙄

AHDB planting and variety survey

The AHDB Planting and Variety Survey provides the earliest view of the planted area for the upcoming harvest in the United Kingdom (UK).​


Complete the Planting and Variety Survey

The survey will estimate the area of cereals and oilseed rape intended for harvest in 2022 in the UK. It aims to assess the varietal composition of wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape crops in the UK. The results of this survey will allow the industry to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.
The information can be used to shape the domestic market and trade and assist levy payers in their marketing decisions. It will detail regional differences of cropping across the UK, which will help...
