Pulses - Winter Beans

Bumble

Winter Beans - Breeder: Senova

Gleadell’s view – Bumble has a lot to offer growers including good yield potential and a large seed size. Standing ability is on the lower side so, if not dealt with, this could cause problems on more fertile sites.

End-market suitability – A relative newcomer to the winter bean market, Bumble has high yield potential and all the right criteria for marketing into the higher value export trade.

Tundra

Winter - Breeder: Limagrain

Gleadell’s view – Tundra has the lion’s share of the winter bean market. Yield is the highest on the PGRO list. Tundra has a good balance of agronomic features making it the first choice of winter bean growers.

End-market suitability – Tundra now dominates the winter bean market thanks to a massive improvement on yield over Wizard. Although Tundra produces slightly smaller beans than others available, they are still suitable for the export market to chase that all-important premium.

Wizard

Winter Beans - Breeder: Senova

Gleadell’s view – Wizard still has a good market share and is popular with export buyers. Its yield is now a way behind Tundra and Bumble, but it is tried and tested and still performs well on a lot of farms.

End-market suitability – Now entering its 15th year on the PGRO list, Wizard is long established as the exporters’ favourite variety. It still has a lot to offer growers, despite yield falling behind newer varieties.
