Weekly Dry Bean Report
USDA’s acreage report this week showed a 21 percent decline in dry bean acreage from last year, basically the same as the March estimate. Larry Sprague from Kelly Bean Company says there is a big change in Michigan.
“Michigan’s March report was 150,000 acres down from the 270,000 of last year. Originally a lot of us were thinking it would be possibly 190 or 195 thousand acres and when it came back at 200 thousand acres we still have a number of the elevators out here kind of saying ‘where are the beans? We just don’t see that many beans.’"
Colorado's bean acres are down 35 percent from last year. North Dakota is down 24 percent and Minnesota is down 15. Sprague suggests that most of that is due to sharp declines in navy and black beans. “That would have to mean that pinto bean acres did not get reduced as much as many people were thinking. A lot of talk was 20 to 25 percent reduction and if navies and blacks did get cut back anywhere close to the percentages people thought that means we still have only got maybe a 15 percent reduction of pintos this year in the North Dakota-Minnesota area.”
The second auction of NAFTA imports permits was held Tuesday in Mexico. Interest was said to be greater than the 43 thousand metric tons of dry beans available duty free. And permits went for nearly two to four dollars a hundred. "It’s good for the marketplace and the overall cutback in acres looks like we are going to be back into more near normal price ranges on dry beans this year,” said Sprague.
The North Dakota dry bean crop was rated 78 percent good to excellent this week. Nebraska's crop 62 percent good to excellent and in Michigan 71 percent of the dry beans are rated good to excellent this week.
