Mexico Getting Rain
July 19, 2012
Late word from Raul Caballero, the US Dry Bean Council's representative in Mexico, is that as of last weekend, the rain in Zacatecas, Durango and Chihuahua has started to become more important and significant to start planting. Zacatecas has reported that they have planted about 14 percent of the total 550,000 programmed bean hectares. They hope to reach 300,000 HA by next week. They have finished planting all the irrigted beans, which total 26,595 hectares that were programmed. Chihuahua and Durango have also received good amounts of water and rain should continue falling. In all three states they are planting as much as they can.
