DRY BEAN HARVEST UNDERWAY
The US dry bean harvest is underway across the country even as cooler temperatures and moisture threaten some regions. North Dakota and Minnesota dodged a bullet Thursday evening with growers fearing a possible early frost jeopardizing the harvest, but luckily no such threat came to fruition. Dry bean shippers, marketing firms, and suppliers are all trading weather patterns in hopes of trying to squeeze values higher before yield numbers start coming in from around the country; which is expected to be larger than last year for certain varieties.
