Our typical approach to desiccating flax has been to use 2 litres glypho let stand for 4-5 weeks then go get it done.... Pushing harvest much sooner usually resulted in time wasted with jammed cutterbar and general plugging etc.

Is there any benefit to the cost of Reglone? Or maybe heating up glyphos with something else???

any suggestions appreciated

Past three years flax has been late and we've used reglone. Yes twice as expensive but it works well for dry down and combining ease. We wait 5-7 days after reglone and then straight cut. I was thinking of using heat but it's not registered but that would be ideal and mix with roundup for the perennials.

I heard of guys with magna cut chopper or MAV chopper being able to do Bethune flax and spread it if you straight cut it high enough, but in our experience with sorrel it can only be burned or baled. We always do ours north/south because at the time of year its very easy to get a north or south wind that's strong and it take no time to burn. The reglone vs roundup for dry down is an amazing difference.
