Bean Harvest ‘All Over the Board’

Page, North Dakota farmer Jim Thompson is working on harvesting his edible beans and is about halfway through. “We’re hoping to finish up black beans in the next couple of days before the expected rains come.” Thompson says the timing of dry bean harvest is all over the board with neighbors in all stages of harvest. Soybean harvest won’t be far behind. “Some of the early maturities are turning pretty hard, so I think overall everything will be ready in the next week to 10 days.”
