Dry Bean Growers Invited to Take Survey

Dry Bean Growers Invited to Take Survey

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is surveying Nebraska dry edible bean producers to gather information about great northern bean production practices.

Growers can complete the survey online at http://go.unl.edu/beansurvey. In addition, paper surveys can be obtained from UNL, filled out, and mailed back. Contact Jessica Johnson, Extension Educator – Ag Economics, at the UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center, 308-632-1247.

Johnson said the survey takes just a few minutes to complete. It is intended to verify data about great northern bean production in Nebraska and update information about typical Panhandle dry bean operations: practices such as row spacing and types of fungicide applications, for example. The data also will tell UNL researchers whether results from UNL variety trial plots accurately reflect the results that Panhandle growers see in their own fields around the Panhandle.

Johnson stressed that all responses are fully anonymous. Growers' identities are not collected on the survey forms.
