In the 2019 PGRO Pulse Recommended Lists, our spring bean varieties Lynx, Fanfare, Vertigo and Mallory take the top four places for yield - as well as bringing improved resistance to downy mildew.
This year also sees the innovation of a new sub-category for LVC (low vicine/convicine) spring beans with our varieties Victus and Tiffany being the first ever listed. They are distinguished by a high protein and low vicine and convicine content - characters that will help to further develop the UK pulse market with end users. Tiffany and Victus are already both being marketed with premiums on buy back contract for specialist animal feed use.
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.
