Black lens
Family: Fabaceae

Latin name: Lens nigricans

Family: Fabaceae


Agronomic characteristics

The black lens, or fodder lens, shows average biomass production results. The plants are not very tall but branch out well and provide good ground cover. Well developed, it is quite easily destroyed (freezing, rolling, etc.). Like some other legumes, the lentil multiplies Aphanomyces. Its fairly low PMG (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.
