Pulse and Soybean Variety Guide

The performance of soybean, dry (edible) bean, field pea, faba bean and lentil varieties is tested at multiple locations across Manitoba each year. The purpose of this variety testing program is to provide independent, unbiased data to help you select the best varieties suited to your farm. Find yield, maturity and other agronomic information summarized in the guides linked below.

  • Using data from the 2022 soybean variety trials, this excel tool auto-generates a highlighter test. Once you select a variety from the drop-down list on the right side of the spreadsheet, varieties that yielded significantly more than your selection will be highlighted in green and varieties that yielded significantly less will be highlighted in red based on each site’s individual LSD value.
  • Within this spreadsheet, there are six sheets reporting data from the Eastern Manitoba Herbicide-Tolerant Soybeans, Western Manitoba Herbicide-Tolerant Soybeans, Eastern Manitoba Conventional Soybeans, Western Manitoba Conventional Soybeans, Eastern First-Year Entry and Western First-Year Entry Trials.
