About Beans

Dry beans when combined with rice contain all nine essential amino acids to form a complete source of protein.

Dry beans require less water to produce than any other protein source.


When dry beans are rotated with wheat, corn or sugar beets they fix the soil by returning nitrogen and nutrients so less  fertilizer and pesticides are required for other crops.
