Crop desiccation has become an increasingly hot topic. In part due to consumer demand for pesticide-free products, variable maximum residue limits (MRLs) across export markets and the negative spotlight on glyphosate.
It doesn’t mean desiccation is off-limits. But we need to understand the limitations of late-season herbicide. Especially when it comes to crops destined for human consumption, including field peas and dry edible beans.
Even though dry beans have been known as a host of SCN since the 1930s, there was limited research on the effects of SCN on dry bean yield.
While doing general field scouting of pulse and soybean crops, it is not unusual to find a lot of insects in the fields.

The fungicide vinclozolin was the go-to product for managing white mould on dry beans for many years, until 2005, when it’s use on beans was revoked by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Over the next 10 years after the loss of vinclozolin, many new fungicides were registered for control or suppression of white mould in Canada.
