GREAT NORTHERN Draco- (GN-Draco)**
Draco is a broadly adapted great northern bean variety ideally suited to Nebraska and Colorado production regions. Draco has shown higher yield potential then traditional great northern beans, such as Marquis and Beryl. Draco has excellent upright architecture, higher pod set and good dry down making it a great candidate for direct harvest. Assuming a 112 lbs./AC yield advantagecompared to Marquis. Growing Draco will potentially increase your profit by $50/AC on $45/cwt. beans. This amounts to $5,000 on 100 acres and the added benefit of upright architecture. Plant Variety Protection for GN Draco is contemplated. Unauthorized propagation of this variety is prohibited.
>A flexible variety that performs well on a range of different soil types.

> Matures 90-94 days similar to Marquis.
> Approximate seed count is 1,280 sds./lb.
> Demonstrated resistance to Bean Common Mosaic Virus. It has shown resistance to prevalent strains of rust that currently affect the Nebraska and Colorado growing regions
