The PGRO Bean Yield Challenge looks towards growing a 10 tonne field bean crop by 2020 and is open to any UK-based grower of a commercial UK-grown spring or winter bean crop and will run until crop 2020 or until the first 10t/ha crop is validated - whichever is the sooner.

There is a prize trophy annually for the highest verified yield for each crop year and the first grower to achieve a verified yield of 10t/ha or more will win a 4-night tour to France for 4 guests, including a night in Paris and French pulse production and research visits.

All entries must be submitted electronically, growers just need to visit this page on the PGRO web site (www.pgro.org/bean-yield-challenge) and complete the short registration form by 31 July.
