Pulse & Soybean Variety Guide

Variety performance of soybeans, dry (edible) beans, field peas, faba beans and lentils is tested at multiple locations throughout Manitoba every year. The purpose of variety performance testing is to provide Manitoba farmers and agronomists with independent information on yield and agronomic characteristics. The information is summarized in the guides below and designed to help select the best varieties suited to each farm and growing region in Manitoba. For each crop type, information is available on yield, maturity and other important agronomic and quality traits specific to each crop.
