KEY STRENGTHS
Strong yields especially coming west through Minnesota into South Dakota.  Big, tall bean with good IDC and SDS tolerance.  Quick canopy helps with weed control and drought tolerance.

WEAKNESSES
Lateral branches often lay down with full pods until the leaves drop at senescence.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
Watch the N:K ratio or this bean gets a little floppy.  Not a good candidate to plant on corn fertility or manure application.  Instead, push the K, Cu, and Mn fertility and this bean has a lot of top-end potential.
