Weekly Bean Report
Grading on dry beans continues slowly – it is a difficult July market as one broker told me this week noted Mike Hergert. Demand for black beans has picked up with dealer prices at 21 to 22.
Grower prices for blacks and pintos are 14 to 15. Navies are quoted 13-14. Crop conditions are a mixed bag – Darrel Berg, Walhalla North Dakota Bean Company, expects at least an average crop. Berg noted, “We’re probably looking at an average to above average yields. We have quite a ways to go yet but plant structure is really nice. Overall we have been getting ample moisture and things are looking pretty good.
I think things are on time – we are getting good heat now and things are going to move along really well. We have a long ways to go and if we get some real hot temperatures when they are blooming – this can really affect the yield too."
Despite timely planting, Curt Kirking at Cavalier Bean Company thinks the crop is running a couple of weeks behind. He said, “We had early planting conditions that got us in early but the cool and dampness kind of held us back some. We had beans in the ground on May 14th-15th - yet they don’t look any different then the ones that were planted on the 24th. It isn’t that the crop isn’t progressing – most years we are looking at spraying for white mold at the very beginning of July and right now we are seeing a lot of the – maybe 30% – 40% blossom.”
Hergert noted that further south conditions vary. The North Dakota Ag Statistics Service says 9% of the crop is blooming as of Sunday – this is normal progress. 87% are rated good to excellent, 64% are good to excellent in Minnesota.
Area dealers met last week. One reason was to discuss USDA’s acreage estimate which many think overstates dry bean acres. <
