SEED AVAILABLE EACH PLANTING SEASON
High performing sugar beans and maize
RED SPECKLED SUGAR BEAN SEED
Lake 101 - Ultra fast growth
Ideally suited to farmers in famine or drought stricken areas that need to make use of a short season to achieve invaluable food security. The bean is highly nutritious with a high protein content. LAKE 101 is also suited to the commercial farmer aiming to benefit from high early season commodity prices by harvesting before the rest, reducing risk exposure or for the farmer wanting to plant a late season crop. The growth habit is upright and if planted with narrower rows and a population above 220,000 plants/ha, the high pod height may allow mechanical harvest.
RED BIO-FORTIFIED SUGAR BEAN SEED
Lake 102 - optimum nutrition
LAKE 102 or Kujengenyama (takes like meat) is a high yielding, NON-GMO, early maturing bio-fortified sugar bean variety and has been specifically bred to contain higher levels of Iron, Zinc and protein.
LAKE 102 is thus the ideal crop for areas needing improved food nutrition – particularly after drought or famines. The bean is a fast cooking type with an excellent meaty flavour. It is an upright, bush type bean but continues flowering indeterminately; offering higher drought tolerance. For commercial farmers, the high yields and demand from food aid and feeding programmes make this an exciting new crop variety
