Industry news: New Pea and Bean Recommended Lists announced

21 November 2012

PGRO have released the new Recommended Lists for Peas and winter and spring beans which were decided earlier this month.

As well as updating variety performance after the difficult 2012 growing season, the Lists introduce three new spring beans and two new grain peas.

The beans are Vertigo and Fanfare, from LS Plant Breeding and Boxer, from Senova. They are all very high yielding with general suitability for the premium export market.

The peas are Stratford, a new large blue pea with excellent downy mildew resistance, from Limagain and Bibao, a high yielding marrowfat, from Danish breeders, Toft.
