Healthy growth meets high protein content.

  • High yield potential & above-average protein yield.
  • Low vicine/convicine content ideally suited for animal feeding (especially poultry) but also interesting for human consumption.
  • Low TGW.
  • Early flowering and mid-early maturity, compact type.

BOLIVIAlvc – Low TGW with high protein content.

BOLIVIAlvc combines a medium plant length with excellent standability, resulting in a compact and easy threshing crop with low losses at harvest. Due to its additional "low vicine and convicine“ quality, BOLIVIAlvc is very suitable for human consumption and animal feeding. Due to the high protein yield a native protein source is provided as an alternative to soybeans, especially in livestock feeding. The small grain size reduces sowing costs and makes it easy to handle with conventional sowing technology.

BOLIVIAlvc convinces with its earlier flowering and a mid-early maturity and a low susceptibility to common diseases, especially rust and Botrytis. As with all field beans, nitrogen fertilization is not recommended, which currently avoids high costs and conserves resources.
