Leading varieties to withstand

stressful conditions.

Almost two decades ago, we started breeding specifically for challenging climate conditions and heat stress. Our first Magma Collection® varieties, Sanford, Lunar, Pelican, and PV857, were introduced for the fresh market in the United States as they showed consistently high marketable yields under heat stress and other challenging conditions. We’re currently extending this collection of stress-resistant beans to other markets where the climate is becoming more extreme, like Italy. 

“I’m excited about the Magma Collection program. It really adds to our arsenal that we can now offer varieties with different timing options and maturity dates, which is a huge advantage for growers.”
