The 2010
growing season was exceptionally warm and most cultivars performed well, except Sovereign and
Sedley that lodged and matured late. There were significant differences in earliness (P<0.001), the
earliest cultivar being Rosetown (901 GDD to maturity), and the latest Sedley (1214 GDD). There
were no significant differences in yield (P=0.111), the average being 1.49 t/ha. Cultivar Meteor was
the highest yielding with 1.86 t/ha but it lodged, whereas cvs Redbow, Redcoat, Rosetown and
Milestone yielded between 1.5–1.6 t/ha and showed few problems in cultivation, so further
experiments will focus on them. In conclusion, lentil cultivation is feasible in Finland, and further
trials will be run in 2011.
