Dry Bean Production in Mexico
For the 2003/04 marketing year, the spring/summer crop was planted from March- May 2003 and harvested from October-December 2003. The fall/winter crop is being planted from October 2003-February 2004 and will be harvested between March-July 2004. Dry bean production for MY 2003/04 is expected higher based largely on above-normal precipitation, which provided abundant soil moisture in the 2003/04 spring/summer crop cycle, and higher harvested area. In Zacatecas, for example, private sources stated that rainfall was approximately 20 percent higher than a year ago in key growing areas. Currently, for MY 2003/04 the forecast of total Mexican dry bean production is 1.43 million metric tons (MMT), just 3 percent below record MY 2002/03 production. This estimate is based on a blend of data gathered during a field visit harvest to the States of Zacatecas and Durango, which produce approximately 40 percent of the spring/summer dry bean harvest, along with the latest Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock and Rural Development, Fishing and Foodstuffs (SAGARPA) data. As in the past, the 2003/04 spring/summer crop cycle is expected to account for approximately 70 percent of total dry edible bean production, with the remainder coming from the fall/winter crop cycle. For 2003/04, Zacatecas growers planted an estimated 670,000 ha of dry beans during the spring/summer season. Of that total, 34,000 ha were irrigated, most of which growers were able to plant on time (March-May), and their yields averaged 2.0 MT/ha. Non-irrigated production on the remaining hectares benefited from favorable weather conditions. However in some areas, late rains have caused quality concerns. As result, some fields of clear varieties were shocked to facilitate drying. In these areas, growers have suggested that there may be up to 20 percent damage in clear varieties (“Flor de Mayo” and “Flor de Junio”). For Zacatecas, the varieties planted in the 2003 Spring/Summer cycle were as follows: VARIETY ZACATECAS % BLACKS 33.5 FLOR DE MAYO 20.1 FLOR DE JUNIO 15.4 BAYO 2.9 CANARIO 2.8 OTHER 23.6 The average yield in Zacatecas for the 2003/04 spring/summer harvest in non-irrigated areas is estimated at 0.53 MT per hectare, which is similar to last year. As in previous years, the Rio Grande area is expected to be the highest producing area in Zacatecas, while Ojo Caliente will likely be the lowest in both production and yields. Durango reported an estimated 264,000 ha planted of dry beans. Durango’s growing conditions this season were similar to those in Zacatecas. Some areas received as much as an additional five inches of rain compared to last year. 2003/04 spring summer production is estimated at nearly 260,000 MT well above last year’s 182,000 MT. The main varieties planted in Durango were 48 percent pinto beans and 28 percent black beans. Average yields are estimated at nearly 1.0 MT/ha, which is 27 percent higher compared to a year ago. Over 90 percent of Durango’s total dry bean area is non-irrigated.
