U.S. Bean Condition Slipping

WASHINGTON - Jul 20/21 - SNS -- Dry edible bean crops in the United States continued to deteriorate over the past week, judging from state level reports from the USDA.

The proportion rated in poor or very poor condition advanced from 27% to 33% because of heat and drought stress in key parts of the growing region. Roughly 28% of fields are rated in good or excellent condition and 38% fair.

Blooming is continuing across the United States, though some states report it is behind last year's pace for middle of July.
