Near Grafton, North Dakota, Tom Kennelly is working on pre-pile sugarbeet harvest before moving onto the dry edible beans. “Right now, there are high sugars and the tons were wide open because of the areas that got rain. I’m not quite sure where we’ll end up, that’s out of my control.” Kennelly says the pink, pinto and navy beans went through a lot. “They didn’t get rain and struggled. Then, we got rains and the beans looked good. The rains shut off and then, came back. The beans aren’t as good as we thought they’d be. We’ll take what we can get and go from there.”
