Availability of UK-grown human consumption quality beans will be about half that of last year at less than 100,000 tonnes

“Estimated feed bean supply is around 500,000-600,000 tonnes. The southern crop was heavily affected by bruchid beetle and the northern crops have suffered staining issues from repeated wetting and drying prior to harvest.

 

“The medium to longer-term agronomic and economic benefits of growing pulses remain strong, even though the exact pulse area in the UK is uncertain for now following changes to EFA rules. All that is removed is the short-term benefit of being able to claim EFA aid on a conventionally grown crop – pesticide applications being prohibited on EFA crop areas. It is hoped that this will not have a negative impact on 2018 crop area,” says PGRO.
