Bean Weevil Damage
Spraying Spring Bean

Bean Weevil continue to be a problem on or spring beans this year. They feed around the permitter of the leaf creating the notching effect seen in the photo.

The spring beans which we spread on and pressed in last month have come better than ever we expected. It has been a very interesting experiment. The establishment has been better on the heavier areas of the field and not so good on the lighter areas. This is opposite to the results seen from drilling them.
