Title: Effect of Planting Dates on Yield and Other Agronomic Traits of Dry Bean
Author: Schneiter, A.A.; Grafton, K.F.
Description: By 1985, the dry edible bean had become an important cash crop in eastern North Dakota, but had limited information concerning production practices to achieve optimum crop yields. A very important component of the crop yield is the planting date. Early plantings might expose these to late frost. Whereas, delayed crops may reduce crop yield. The objective of the study presented was to determine the effect of planting dates upon yield and agronomic traits of pinto and navy beans. This study indicated that a delayed maturity would be obtained from a late planting. Yield reductions would be resultant, also. In most areas of North Dakota, it was recommended that farmers wait until after the last average frost date before planting, May 15-31st. In order to minimize seedling rot, planting should be delayed until the average soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F.
