Beans On Irrigated Mesas

Would white and pink beans do well on the red orange land at Palermo

with plenty of water? I have in mind hill land, the hills being very red

and running into a dark soil in the lower part. How many beans could I

get per acre?

Probably nothing would be better for the land or for the future needs of

the trees than to grow beans. An average crop of beans, for the whole

State and all kinds of beans, is about one ton to the acre. What you

will get by irrigation on hot uplands we do not know. Beans do not like

dry heat, even if the soil moisture is adequate. They do not fructify

well even when they grow well. The pink bean does best under such

conditions. All beans, except horse beans, must be brought up after

frost dangers are all over, and this brings them into high heat almost

from the start in such a place as you mention. You should find out

locally how beans perform under such conditions as you have, before

undertaking much investment.
