2023 Dry Bean Stocks Report Produced Through MDARDs Producer Security Services Section
September 25, 2023
LANSING, Mich. - Commercial elevators in Michigan held 1,223,392 hundredweight (cwt.) of dry beans in storage as of August 31, 2023, according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD). The quantity on hand included 641,141 cwt. of navy beans; 436,225 cwt. of black beans; 76,748 cwt. of small red beans; and 68,978 cwt. of all other classes. Stocks account for all beans in commercial off-farm storage including a small portion of non-Michigan grown products. This report does not include an estimate of the quantity of dry beans held on farms.
This is the 20th issue in a series of Dry Bean Stocks reports sent at the request of the Michigan Bean Commission and the Michigan Bean Shippers Association. Beginning in August of 2006, MDARD's Producer Security Services Section assumed the responsibility for issuing these annual reports, therefore data for intervening years is unavailable. August 31 will be the reference date for tabulation and publishing henceforth.
Dry bean stocks are not included in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Statistics Board system of grain stocks reports. Dry bean stocks data included in this report were tabulated from administrative reports supplied monthly by elevator operators to MDARD.
