Plain language summary

Yellow bean produced in Alberta is exported to other countries. Bright yellow colour of the seed and large seed size are preferred by consumers. Late maturity is a concern with the currently grown yellow bean cultivars in Alberta. Therefore, AAC Y012 and AAC Y015 yellow bean were registered as cultivars for commercial production under irrigation in Alberta and Saskatchewan due to their high yield potential, early maturity and bright yellow seed coat colour.

AAC Y012 and AAC Y015 are high yielding, early maturing yellow dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivars with a determinate bush growth habit (Type I), improved seed coat colour, and partial field resistance to white mould.
