2 Anthracose ratings, the predominant race found now in Ontario is Race 73. Race 17 (binary system) is equivalent to the Alpha race, race 23 (binary system) is equivalent to the Delta race.
3 To convert 100 seed weight (g) to seeds per pound divide 45,400 by seed weight. Example: 45,400 / 63 gm = 720 seeds/lb
4 A variety's suitability of direct harvest is based on a scale of 1-5, where 1 = upright plant type, standing erect with good bottom pod height and 5 = more prostrate plant type or plants that are not erect, with poor bottom pod height.
* Resistance gene for common bacterial blight (Xanthomonas campestris pv. Phaseoli). Very little disease will develop on these varieties.
