The dry bean crop is quickly approaching maturity. BASF Technical Service Rep Ken Deibert says timing is critical for your harvest aid application. “The dry beans have been turning yellow, eventually brown. for quite some time. The recommendation I’d make at this point, because we have an outstanding crop, let’s get these harvest applications going. The key is to apply products in a timely manner.” Timing is the key to the success of the desiccation application. “In some cases, we’re going out with Sharpen alone. Some may have tank mixes incorporated, but the key is not only to get the use rate and additives right, but the optimal timing. We want that crop to be at 80 percent yellow to brown pods.” Hear the story.
