Ueans germinate and grow rncU efficiently when the soil and air temperatures are above 05 degrees. Few varieties can tolerate lower temperatures for long periods without being dam- aged. Tn southern Alberta, field beans must be sown between mid-May and early June to en- sure an adequate growing per- iod for the crop to reach ma- turity before fall frosts occur. If low soil and air tempera- tures prevail al seeding lime, germination and subsequent growth may be inhibited and lender new leaves arxl later the flowers may lie destroyed, 'nie weakened plants are usu- ally incapable of Hie rapid de- velopment necessary lo pro- duce and itipport large num- bers of flowers and pods.

One such variely is the green-shell bean Limelight, which was licensed for sale this year. Efforts are now being made lo transfer the low-lemperalure tolerance of Limelight and oth- er varielies to a number of snc.p and field bean varielies.
