Press Release - 21.03.16: VERTIGO AND FANFARE LEAD THE FIELD FOR SPRING BEAN GROWERS THIS SEASON

SPRING DRILLING TIMEVertigo and Fanfare lead the field for spring bean growers this season, Vertigo has the edge on yield - just ahead of its sister variety Fanfare - but for growers on strong land, the slightly better standing ability of Fanfare may well tip the balance towards that variety.

The two varieties are top of the 2016 PGRO Recommended List with 103 and 102 over control respectively, compared to other varieties with yield ratings between 98 to 93.

Vertigo and Fanfare have good agronomic profiles, and for buyers and end users, both have good thousand seed weights - with Fanfare topping protein content levels on the list.
