Manager is the latest yellow pea to hit the market from the KWS Momont successful pulse breeding programme.
It is a very high yielding variety nationally over a range of soil types; Manager has a strong disease resistance package including resistance to pea wilt. It has very short stiff straw allowing safe harvest making it the next step up from older competitor varieties.
In the last three years we have seen Manager demonstrate consistently high yields when compared to other varieties, it also consistently produces a large seed size.
In short Manager ticks all the boxes for UK pea growers and end users alike.
