“The earlier they were planted, the better they will be,” Carlton said.
Beans mature on more of a day-length scale than corn. So as long as the days are long, the nights are short and the frost stays away, there should be a good bean yield.
According to Carlton, the recent drought should not have too much of an impact on the crop yields as a whole. Of course, it did have some impact on the later-planted crops, but overall he expects the yields to be pretty good this year. Only time will truly tell.
