Varieties used for comparison: 'CDC Fatima', 'SSNS-1' and 'FB9-4'
Summary: The plants of '247-13' flower very early to early whereas those of 'SSNS-1' flower early to mid-season. The plants of '247-13' are shorter than those of 'SSNS-1' and taller than those of 'FB9-4'. The leaflet of '247-13' is shorter than that of 'CDC Fatima' and 'SSNS-1'. The pod of '247-13' is longer than that of all the reference varieties, wider than that of 'SSNS-1' and narrower than that of 'FB9-4'. The weight of one hundred seeds of '247-13' is greater than that of 'CDC Fatima' and 'SSNS-1'.
PLANT: very early to early flowering, dark green foliage
LEAFLET: maximum width located at middle
FLOWER: black melanin spot present, very small to small extent of anthocyanin colouration on standard

Origin & Breeding History: '247-13' originated from a cross conducted in 2005 at the Crop Development Centre of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The cross was made between the varieties 'Snowbird' x ('Puebla' x 'Taboar'). '247-13' was selected from an F8 sub-line derived from a single plant. Selection of '247-13' was based on yield, seed weight, seed size, seed coat colour, days to flowering, days to maturity, lodging and plant height.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trials for '247-13' were conducted during the summer of 2014 and 2015 at the Preston field site of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The trials consisted of two replications in a RCB design. Planting density was 40 seeds per metre square, planted in three rows. The rows were 3.66 metres long with a row spacing of 0.30 metres. The observations and measurements were taken randomly from 60 plants of each variety.
