Colorado State University

We are funding three research projects:

  • Pinto bean variety trial in Lucerne to determine which varieties perform best in Colorado, Dr. Jerry Johnson

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.

Colorado Bean News

We publish a newsletter to keep Colorado bean growers and dealers informed about issues affecting the bean industry.
