LSPB has introduced a number of outstanding varieties of spring beans over the years from its long-established and successful breeding programme.
The 2017 PGRO Recommended List for spring beans shows our new variety Lynx joining Vertigo as the joint equal top-yielding varieties. Lynx also adds the highest downy mildew resistance on the list to its agronomic characters.
Fanfare also is high yielding, with the long-established Fury keeping its fully recommended rating to give our fourth variety on this year’s list.
Our bean breeding programme promises to bring even more new and improved varieties to the UK grower as we continually evaluate our varieties in breeders and official trials.
Indeed, as one example, our new variety Tiffany - currently going through trials - promises to extend the market for UK beans as its low vicine and convicine profile makes the end product especially suitable for poultry feed.
