It was a rough start to the kidney bean and navy bean harvest for Perham, Minnesota farmers. However, a stretch of warm and dry weather allowed for some of the harvest to progress. Get the details in the Dry Bean Scene made possible, in part, by the Northarvest Bean Growers Association.
Warm and dry weather is allowing farmers to get the dry edible bean crop in the ground. Kelley Bean Company general manager in Minnesota and North Dakota John Bartsch says the start of planting was later than usual. A few acres have been switched from soybeans to dry beans. Get the details in this week’s Dry Bean Scene on the Red River Farm Network.
