Glyphosate is registered for pre-harvest weed control. Do not use as a desiccant. To prevent unacceptable residues in the harvested grain, only apply pre-harvest glyphosate when grain moisture content is less than 30% in the least mature part of the field, including any areas of re-growth with seed production.

Consult with your grain buyer before using pre-harvest glyphosate on pulse crops. MRLs are established in all major markets; however, marketing restrictions may still be present due to scrutiny of glyphosate in the global marketplace. Green lentils are classified “yellow - be informed”, while red lentils are classified “green - no market risks identified”. This variation is due to the difference in sensitivities of end use markets between the two market classes. Most dry bean buyers do not accept pre-harvest glyphosate.
