Set up in 2019 in partnership with PGRO, the Bean YEN was established with the support of industry sponsors, including key developmental funding from LSPB.
The Bean YEN is entering its fourth season in 2022 and aims to continue the growth we have seen so far. Interested bean growers can join to benchmark their crops using a variety of nutritional, physiological and quality parameters. The network aim is to understand how this variation is linked to achieved bean yields. We hope that this increased knowledge base will help us find new ways to increase bean yields on-farm.
All members will be provided with a comprehensive report, detailing how their crop performed compared to other bean crops in the YEN. Members are also invited to discuss results, experiences and ideas at the Results Conference.
