With drilling of the 2017 spring crop well under way, the challenge can be taken up again by both winter and spring bean growers, says PGRO chief executive, Roger Vickers. “The deadline for this year is July, 31 and the rules of the competition and the downloadable entry form can be found on our web site www.pgro.org/index.php/bean-yield-challenge.

 

“The PGRO Bean Yield Challenge is open to UK-based growers of any commercial UK-grown grain crop. A prize trophy is awarded annually for the highest verified yield, while the absolute Yield Challenge winner will be the first grower to achieve a verified yield of 10t/ha or more.

 

“Even though 2016 was not a banner year for yields, in contrast to the excellent 2015 season, many growers achieved highly profitable results from their beans - with Richard Wainwright harvesting 6.81t/ha from his spring bean crop of Fanfare.

"Richard’s excellent yield sets a high standard for this year’s challenge and we look forward to even more growers putting their crops forward this year,” adds Mr Vickers.
