Autumn 2023

Winter beans

Rebecca White

Winter beans are a sound alternative break crop to oilseed rape, providing good residual nitrogen levels for the following cereal crop.

Agrii has good availability of Vespa, Tundra and Vincent winter beans for autumn sowing.

Vespa is the Market-leading winter bean variety, offering high yields and good all-round disease resistance.

Vincent is new addition to our portfolio and has the most robust downy mildew resistance, bold bean size, and excellent protein content.

We will have some exciting new varieties available for spring planting, including Futura and Genius spring beans and Carrington peas.

Do you use cover crops within your farm rotation?

Thanks for your answer!

Other spring pulse varieties include the popular Lynx and Vertigo beans and Daytona, Greenway & Kameleon peas. As in previous years, buyback contracts are available for all combining peas through GB Seeds.

We will have limited availability of lupin seeds, which are a great source of homegrown protein for use in livestock rations. For more information speak to your local Agrii contact or Rebecca White on 07721 128172 or
