Step up your harvest. With the perfect pre - harvest.

Pulse crops mature from the bottom up, leaving green material at the top. That’s where your pre-harvest herbicide comes in, improving crop uniformity and harvest efficiency. However, a pre-harvest herbicide will start to dry down the crop immediately – regardless of maturity. Applied too early, it can affect yield, reduce seed size and even exceed maximum residue limits.

Look out for fall colours.

Be sure to scout regularly when the colour of your fields start to turn. Look for visual cues that indicate your crop is ready for a pre-harvest herbicide application. For dry beans, 90% of the pods will have turned yellow and/or light brown. 80 to 90% of the original leaves will have dropped, and stems are green to brown in colour.
