Black lens
Family: Fabaceae

Latin name: Lens nigricans

Family: Fabaceae


Agronomic characteristics

Black lens, or fodder lens, shows average biomass production results. Plants are not very tall but branch out well and provide good ground cover. When well developed, it is fairly easily destroyed (freezing, rolling, etc.). Like some other legumes, lentil is highly susceptible to Aphanomyces. Its fairly low TKW (half to a third of that of vetches) limits the quantities of seeds to be handled and facilitates associations with small seeds. Common lentils are a little less suited to produce biomass than blackish lentil.
