Winter Beans - 6tonnes per hectare
Winter Beans yield well
Some growers are claiming that their winter beans could be the crop of the year with good yields upwards of 5.5- 6.5t/Ha. We have reports of Honey and Wizard crops achieving yields approaching 2.75t/acre, something we haven’t seen for a few years.
Even though establishment was difficult last Autumn crops emerged well through the winter and benefited from good amounts of rainfall at the critical flowering stage in the summer.
Disease levels were higher than previous years, however where growers have kept on top of late disease they have been duly rewarded.
