AbstractResults of the 1998 National Cooperative Dry Bean Nursery Trials are reported in this paper. Forty one varieties of nine different classes of beans were included in this replicated, small plot trial. AC Calmont, a dark red kidney variety was the highest yielding variety in the study with a yield over 2800 pounds per acre. Kodiak was the highest yielding pinto variety with a yield over 2700 pounds per acre. Yields, seed per pound, aerial biomass, harvest index, plant population days to 50% bloom and days to 50% pod set are reported for this study. In addition to the small plot replicated trial, a pinto variety strip trial was conducted at this site. Nine varieties, including the best varieties from past trials, were tested in this study. ISB 2001 was the leading variety in this study with a yield of 3276 pounds per acre.
