CDC Lima - Large Green CL lentil CDC Lima is a large green CL lentil variety that yields and grades like the top non CL lentil varieties such as CDC Greenstar
Imidazolinone tolerance (Clearfield)
Seed thickness greater than that of CDC Improve and CDC Impower
High yield compared to CDC Improve and CDC Impower
Improved lodging resistance over CDC Improve and CDC Impower
Similar agronomic and maturity characteristics compared to CDC Improve and CDC Impower
Similar disease resistance as CDC Improve and CDC Impower
CDC Lima CL is a high-yielding large green imi-tolerant lentil. In the Lentil Registration Recommendation Trials, it yielded 114% of the Clearfield large green lentil variety CDC Improve in 2013 and 111% of the Clearfield large green lentil variety CDC Impower in 2014-2015. In the 2015-2017 Regional Variety Trials, CDC Lima a yielded 117% of CDC Impower; bringing it closer to the yield of the top yielding large green variety CDC Greenstar (non-CL). CDC Lima has similar disease resistance characteristics and agronomic traits as CDC Impower. It has a larger seed compared to CDC Impower which is also thicker; making CDC Lima more suitable for lentil dehulling.
