2015 Lima Bean Herbicide Chart

Julie Kikkert, Team Leader, Extension Vegetable Specialist
Cornell Vegetable Program

2015 Lima Bean Herbicide Chart
Baby lima beans for processing are a new crop in New York. As growers prepare to plant, they must understand the differences in herbicides for this crop compared to snap beans and dry beans. Lima beans react to some herbicides differently because they are the species Phaseolus lunatus as compared to common beans which are P. vulgaris.

Serious injury can be caused to lima beans if Eptam, Reflex, Assure II/Targa, or PostEmergence applications of Pursuit are used.

Herbicides that are labeled for lima beans in New York are given in the table below. Mark VanGessel from the University of Delaware provides the following information: on our loamy soils (approx. 1% organic matter) growers use 1.0 to 1.25 pints/A of Dual Magnum (rates similar for snap beans) and 1.5 to 2.0 oz of Pursuit at planting. They can be used pre-plant incorporated (PPI), but most farmers are applying them immediately after planting (PRE). Sandea is also labeled, but Pursuit is a better fit for the weeds in DE. Basagran, Sandea, Poast and Select Max are labeled for post-emergence control, with the choice depending on the weeds that emerge. We have a lot of Pursuit/Sandea resistant pigweeds in DE so be sure to rotate away from this mode of herbicide action in years that you are not growing lima beans in these fields.

Resources from CCE ENYCHP!

We are developing new ways to connect with the CCE ENYCHP team this year! We have a Youtube page located at this link. Check out videos on Table Grape Production, Pest Updates and the 20 Minute Ag Manager - in 4 Minutes series

We have a Facebook Page here as well as an Instagram page. We keep these places updated with current projects, events, and other interesting articles and deadlines.

There are also text alerts available. Fruit and vegetable farmers in 17 Eastern NY counties can now receive real time alerts on high risk disease and pest outbreaks texted directly to their cell phone. The Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture program, which is supported by local Cornell Cooperative Extension associations, will now offer text alerts to those that enroll in our program in 2019. 

The text alerts will be reserved for important crop alerts that could impact management decisions immediately. For instance, if there were an outbreak of Late Blight in the area, this would be transmitted to vegetable growers.

Farmers can choose the crop for which they wish to receive updates. Additionally they can request that Ag Business Alerts be sent to them. These alerts might include due dates for crop insurance deadlines, market opportunities etc.

If you have questions, please contact enychp@cornell.edu
