glyphosate in lentils

I talked with a number of lentil buyers in the area, and they are all recommending not to use glyphosate on lentils for preharvest, they are saying that there is no restriction on trade at present but they are all worried about it.

Anybody hearing this and what are you doing, I was going to hit some with glyphos soon due to weed pressure, but I am now thinking about waiting it out and going with reglone. what are others doing.

I was in the same boat. I decided that since I still have some in the bin that have been sprayed with glyphosate already that I would do it one last time. What I've heard from buyers is that they don't want to have to back on their word if something happens in a few months, thus creating animosity with clients they had told it would be fine.

did all reglone this year. on a section its doable though. I don't know how you do that on large acreage - lots of water, at night, when lots of other stuff on the go??????
have heard through the grapevine that some randomly tested samples were coming back over the allowed MRL even when done at correct rate and staging. to be honest until a few years ago staging lentils was more to prevent yield damage than prevent chemical uptake!!!! by the time the entire field is at a level of maturity that no plants are pulling in glyphosate, most are so ripe that the gly would not have adequate time to dry weeds down anyways


too bad we are ultimately going to loose it, was sure a good way to get some perennial weed control and to knock out the low spots!

Yeah this glyphosate thing it’s the $hits. But if you spray reglone or a dry down product it will be about 5-6$ more than glyphosate. Than you know you can sell your crop with no hassle. And your in the field in 3-5 days. Glyphosate 10-14 days. Getting in the field 5 days sooner means alot to me. But it’s not ideal so spray late evening and into the night and 15 gallons acre

Spraying reglone sucks, we have had many nights of it over the years. But usually not combining anything else at the time. I have found with the glyphosate usually hurts grade a bit anyway, but a nice tool to have to control certain weeds.
If selling right away I would not be scared to use it, but if your going to store them, who knows what can change in the market place.
Here is to hoping we don’t ever loose reglone !

I did 1/3 with reglone, it’s ready after 3 days. The stuff I sprayed with heat is full of green spots (10 days later) did the 40 acre rate at 10 gallons water
