Welcome to the Grain Legume Workgroup web site. The purpose of this site is to be a repository of information specifically about dry beans and grain legumes in general.
The 2012 proceedings are now available!
Searchable database of the Work group proceedings
Items that are included in this site are:
- Common Dry Bean Production in California 2nd Edition
- Garbanzo Diseases by Carol Frate
- Dry bean cost studies
- Statistical information about dry bean production
- Blackeye Production Basics
- Variety information
- Bean pictures
Here is some research information from Montana State University:
"Biocontrol treatments did not control damping off of chickpea."
The ascochyta blight gallery contains images of infected garbanzo plants. These photos were provided by Weidong Chen, USDA-ARS Research Plant Pathologist for the purpose of helping growers and PCAs identify the disease in it's early stages.
The California Dry Bean Advisory Board provides funding for much of the research reported on this site. We appreciate their continued support.
