The highest yielding variety was CO-1760, a Great Northern variety which yielded 3340 pounds per acre. The second highest yielding variety was Bill-Z, a pinto variety, which yielded 3111 pounds per acre. Several other varieties of beans yielded nearly 3000 pound per acre and are potential alternative crops for the area. The other study was a pinto bean demonstration. In it, Olathe was the top yielding variety with a yield of 3260 pounds per acre with Bill-Z a close second with 3190 pounds per acre.
