Black Tails
Black Tails <13489> is a new black bean variety that initially has shown good adaptability ideally suited to the MINDAK production regions. A consistent performer throughout the trialing process and in commercial production, its upright architecture and excellent yield potential make it an excellent choice for MINDAK growers. Black Tails plant habit is broader and taller than Eclipse providing more material to pull into the combine.


Assuming the 138 lbs./AC* yield increase over Eclipse, profit would increase $41/AC on $30/cwt beans. This would amount to $4,100 increased profit over Eclipse on 100 acres of production.

> Excellent upright architecture suitable for direct harvest.
> Matures in 100 days or about 2 days later than Eclipse**
> Approximate seed count is 2,388 sds./lb. with nice uniform seed size and shape.***
> Preliminary disease testing shows that Black Tails <13489> has the “I” gene for bean common mosaic virus, resistance to races of Rust commonly found in High Plains as well as some Common Bacterial Blight (CBB) tolerance.
