Hybrid Overview

KEY STRENGTHS

Racehorse yielder with excellent western movement. Stands like a champ and handles some of the key stresses for beans in this geography.

WEAKNESSES

Much of the disease package has a moderate tolerance rather than full resistance.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

Fits from Wisconsin through Minnesota, North Dakota, and eastern Montana. Think of it as a racehorse, but don’t discount the level of defense this has to handle stress. Stands very well and fills the rows better than most.
