Varieties of pulse crops for Alberta provides information on pulse variety performance within Alberta and northeastern British Columbia,” says Alex Fedko, crop research technologist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. “Important agronomic characteristics and disease resistance information are provided for varieties of field pea, lentil, faba bean, dry bean and soybean.”

In 2019, 16 seed companies submitted entries for testing at up to 20 locations across Alberta and northern British Columbia. The tables in this publication report the yield data by geographical area.

These tables are different from those appearing in the Spring 2020 edition of the Alberta Seed Guide, as only those varieties actually tested in 2019 were reported in that issue.
