The 2018 PGRO Recommended List for spring beans shows the outstanding varieties LSPB has introduced over the years from its long-established and successful breeding programme.
Our spring bean varieties currently take the top four places with Lynx at the head of the list again with the highest yield, and a downy mildew rating of ‘7’.
Our newly-listed spring bean Mallory is just below Lynx in yield and has the same high downy mildew rating.
We also have our specialist spring bean Tiffany which is particularly high in yield and distinguished by a high protein content. Due to the variety’s low Vicine and Convine content, Tiffany is particularly suitable for feeding on laying hens. Tiffany has medium to early maturity and good standing power.
Looking to the future, we can see new spring bean varieties already progressing through the trials system as we continue to bring improved varieties to the UK grower.
