This year, Michigan State University Extension researchers and Michigan dry bean producers tested 161 lines from 12 market classes of dry beans. The trial plots were placed in six locations across five Michigan counties: Bay, Huron, Montcalm, Sanilac and Tuscola (two sites).

Small and medium-seeded beans were tested in Bay, Huron, Sanilac and Tuscola counties. Large-seeded beans were tested in Montcalm County and at the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center (SVREC) in Tuscola County.

The Michigan Dry Bean Performance Trials report summarizes the results of the trials.
