So often talk with a guy that gets across 1,000s of acres a year with a rogator, and he pretty much hates 30" rows vs. 15" because of the increased difficulty in keeping them clean for his clients regardless of the herb. program. I wouldn't plant the field twice, instead seek a SB variety that is a type that potentially canopies faster with branching, plus consider a slightly higher pop. Here in W. Illinois, white mold isn't much of a concern, at least for us that no-till.
I no-till drill 7.5" beans (130k pop.) into green cereal rye targeting mid to late April, then do a early post/burndown in mid-May, and then a later post in June, which is working well so far for weed control. Usually for the mid May spraying the beans are already emerged, which somewhat limits the herb. choices.
