Portage (CFIA registration no. 6881) is a high-yielding, early-maturing navy bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) cultivar with moderate resistance to common bacterial blight, developed at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Research Station, Morden, MB, and the Greenhouse and Processing Crops Research Centre at Harrow, ON. Portage is adapted to the dry bean producing regions of Manitoba. Portage has similar cooking and canning quality as the check cultivars.
