Black Bear is a new black bean variety that has shown good adaptability to the MINDAK production regions as well as the High Plains and Michigan. 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.
Assuming the 96 lbs./AC* yield increase over Zorro, profit would increase $28/AC on $30/cwt beans. This would amount to $2,800 increased profit over Zorro on 100 acres of production.

> Approximate seed count for Black Bear is 2,496 sds./lb. as compared to Zorro with an average seed count of 2,335 sds./lb.*** > Black Bear’s upright, broad structure and high pod set makes for a great variety for direct harvest
