Abstract
The Nebraska dry edible bean industry has an extended history of production and processing in the North Platte River Valley. In the time that dry beans have been produced in the area, the region has developed a reputation for producing a consistently high quality product for both the domestic and export marketplace. Nebraska has historically been the market leader in Great Northern bean production with more than 85 percent of this market class being produced here. With the interest in dry bean production increasing throughout North America, it is an opportune time to evaluate cost of production by geographic region, and to review actual production history for these regions.
