Beans

The 2022 PGRO Descriptive Lists for field beans show that LSPB varieties continue to offer pulse growers a wide choice to meet their yield, agronomy and marketing priorities.

The consistent yield of Lynx brings it to the top of the spring bean yield table. It is joined by Ghengis, Macho, Fanfare, Vertigo and Yukon plus our LVC varieties Victus, Tiffany, Allison and Bolivia – along with Pantani, LSPB’s first winter bean on the DL.

For the future, we have promising Candidates in the pipeline – including new winter beans as well as spring beans to do our part in developing the future UK pulse crop.
