Spring Beans

Seedtech offers the latest top performing Spring Bean variety genetics to the Irish market.  For best yields choose Fanfare. It has the added benefit of excellent Downy Mildew resistance, which is becoming more problematic as the bean area increases. While Lynx, a new variety, is one to watch for in 2019. Download our datasheet and growers guide below for further information.

Benefits of Growing Spring Beans

Highly palatable feed ingredient that is in demand with our feed industry.

All beans are eligible for protein payments and meet SFP greening requirements including EFA’s.
3. PROFITABILITY:
When prospective prices for cereals are low, beans are low cost but can be a very profitable crop.
4. EXCELLENT BREAK CROP OPTION:
Beans root deeply, fix nitrogen and can add a 0.5 t/ac to the following cereal crop with the possibility of a seed contract.
5. WIDE HARVESTING WINDOW:
