In this week’s Dry Bean Scene, North Dakota State University Extension Plant Pathologist Sam Markell tells dry bean growers what they should be scouting for in their fields. The Dry Bean Scene is brought to you, in part, by Northarvest Bean Growers Association.
Hello & thanks for clicking!
Northarvest Beangrower Magazine is changing publishers.
While we at Northarvest Bean Growers Association have enjoyed our publishing partnership with Red River Farm Network for many years, they’ve chosen to bow out of print publishing. RRFN has done great work over the past 18(!) years and Northarvest very much appreciates all the effort put in by so many since the start of our magazine. NBGA is pleased to share that we will continue to work together with RRFN on our weekly radio segment, the Dry Bean Scene, as well as other projects.
Moving forward, Northarvest Bean Growers Association is excited to announce a new partnership with Agweek for our print magazine.
Interviews are taking place, stories are being written, photos are being taken and our advertisers are being contacted. If you haven’t heard from us yet, you will shortly – though feel free to shoot us an email with any questions .
While we normally see an issue out for delivery around June, with the change of publishing duties, we expect the first magazine from our new partners to start arriving in subscribers’ mailboxes near the end of July/early August, depending on printing availability & USPS delivery speed.
Thanks for reading & please feel free to reach out with any questions.

The crop put in the ground in 2022 will likely be the most expensive to date in a farmer’s career. Northland Community and Technical College Farm Business Management Instructor Ron Dvergsten says the financials still work. “It kind of reminds me of 2011-2012 when input costs were high, too,” said Dvergsten. “I’ve run some budgets this fall and it doesn’t leave a lot of wiggle room, but it does work if we get normal yield.” Many farmers were able to capture strong cash prices for this year’s crop. Dvergsten is advising his clients to also consider making sales for the 2022 crop. “Look at locking in 25-to-40 percent of your projected bushels between now and sometime next spring to give you a little buffer. Most likely, you’ll be putting more cost per acre into your farm in 2022 than you ever have in your farming history.”
