Cool Weather Boosts Flowering

According to North Dakota State University Dry Bean Breeder Juan Osorno there’s a few dry bean plot varieties that are excelling this year like ND Rodeo, ND Lariat, ND Polar, ND Pegasus, and ND Twilight Black. Osorno says dry bean crops in central and northern North Dakota look good. “The cooler weather is perfect for setting flowers and pods right now. Hot weather leads to flower abortion and yields are affected.”
