Leguminosae / Papilionaceae family Sowing: directly planted only when the temperature has stabilized on values above 10 ° c; in practice starting from March in the southern regions and elsewhere starting from April. The sowing can be gradual until June so as to be able to harvest the beans at different times. The cultural cycle varies from 2 to 3 months. Seeds required: 2-2.5 kg. For 100 square meters of land. Distances: sow in rows 40/50 cm apart. burying 3-4 seeds 20/25 cm apart along the rows. The seed must be buried by 2-3 cm. Fertilization: Beans grow well in fertile soils that have only been fertilized with organic fertilizers the year before sowing. Avoid using unripe manure. Useful advice: it is advisable to slightly tamp the soil around the plants so as to form longitudinal furrows.
