Drilling beans

Irish Examiner - Farming - - GENERAL FARMING -

Re­cent re­search find­ings sug­gest that late Oc­to­ber or early Novem­ber is the op­ti­mum win­ter beans drilling time. Late Novem­ber plant­ings tend to be more prone to bird dam­age.

En­sure good ground con­di­tions, to op­ti­mise es­tab­lish­ment and a denser plant stand, for bet­ter weed con­trol in the longer term.

Seed sam­ples that test pos­i­tive for As­cochyta should not be planted.
