Pretty bean crop in sunset

Grow the latest beans, chickpeas, lentils and peas.

Legumes are an essential rotation crop and can have great profitability. (Just ask anyone growing lentils in SA over the last decade).
Our farmers’ main crops here in SA are faba beans, field peas, lentils, and chickpeas.

A couple of our tips from over the years:
Make sure you use a good seed treatment option at sowing to protect from disease, and check out our tips for pulses when dry sowing. 

What about inoculants? If you’re wondering whether it’s worth inoculating your legumes, well now there’s a test to find out.

In terms of weed control, in recent years we have seen some exciting improvements with the releases of Imi-tolerant lentils and  Imi-pea varieties.

Oh, and if you’re a regular pea grower, make sure you keep an eye on field pea blackspot.
