2012 Variety Trial Data

MPGA Pulse Variety Evaluation – Fall 2012

The results found within these publications are made possible with your continued support through the check-off levy. Financial assistance has also been received in the past from the Government of Canada’s Matching Investment Initiatives (MII). It should also be noted the Manitoba Crop Variety Evaluation Team (MCVET) has provided the pea data and cost- shared the lentil data with MPGA.

MPGA appreciates the hard work of the staff at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Morden Research Station who conducts the Wide Row Screening Trials, and provides the crop yield, disease and seed quality data in time for these publications. In addition MPGA would like to acknowledge the contractors who plant, monitor and harvest the plots. MPGA’s appreciation also goes out to the various Manitoba Agriculture, Food, and Rural Initiatives staff that assists us in putting the Edible Bean Variety Trials together on an annual basis.

In each of the Variety Trial summaries you will find yield, maturity, and disease resistance data on edible beans, soybeans, peas, and lentils.
