At Hatton, North Dakota, dry bean harvest got started last week. Kelley Bean Company’s Dean Nelson says, in general, harvest has been stop-and-go in the area due to rains. “The pinto and black beans coming in have been good quality. We’re probably 25-to-30 percent done with harvest,” says Nelson. However, production is down from a record crop in 2017. “While it is down a bit, there was enough subsoil moisture and caught enough rains.”
