Title:    Demonstration of heirloom dry bean types.
Heritage dry bean landraces are potentially valuable to food producers who want to access specialty markets. This project will evaluate 7 uncharacterized dry bean landraces for agronomic characteristics, yield, and palatability.

Abstracts for project:  
Eight heirloom dry bean landraces were compared with a CDC pinto bean variety for yield and maturity in 2016 and 2017 in a small plot trial. Three replicates were grown using seed sourced from specialty seed catalogues. The Minnesota 1940's line and the Speckled Algonquin line may be of interest for commercial production. Other types might be of interest but seem less suited to narrow-row dryland production.
