The CDBC promotes the Colorado bean industry through research.
Colorado State University
We are funding three research projects:
How beans can help prevent cancer, Dr. Henry Thompson
Bean breeding project to improve the profitability of bean growers, Dr. Maria Munoz- Amatriain
Pinto bean variety trial in Lucerne to determine which varieties perform best in Colorado, Dr. Jerry Johnson
Black-eyed peas/cowpeas trial, Dr. Maria Munoz-Amatriain
Irrigation Research Foundation
We are funding a pinto bean variety trial in Yuma this year. Previously we did a multi-year project to determine how water could be saved without lowering bean yields. Jerry Hayes, one of our directors, is supervising the project.
