USDA released the April Crop Production report on Thursday. Those dry bean productions numbers can be found below.
According to the June USDA acreage report, area planted for dry beans in 2019 is estimated at 1.31 million acres. That’s up nine percent from 2018 for comparable states. Dry bean area harvested is forecast to total 1.26 million acres. That is also up nine percent from 2018 for comparable states. Four of the nine estimating states show an increase in total dry bean planted acres from last year.
Beginning in 2019, dry bean estimates were discontinued in Montana and Texas. Also beginning in 2019, estimates no longer include chickpeas.
In the Perham, Minnesota area, Professional Agronomy Services agronomist Brad Guck says dry bean planting is a wrap and the crop is off to a good start. Get the details in this week’s Dry Bean Scene on the Red River Farm Network.
