The 2020 Nebraska Dry Edible Bean Day will feature an appearance by the Nebraska Secretary of State and Director of Agriculture, as well as updates on research and reports from the Nebraska Dry Bean Commission.
In some areas of western Nebraska hail and drought took a toll on dry edible beans this year, reducing the feasability of harvesting them for rigorous human consumption standards. Consider these other options for their use.
With limited precipitation and warm temperatures this week, dry beans turned quickly and harvest has started. Conditions should provide for good data collection from on-farm research of using direct harvesting methods.
