Maybe there will be some spotty areas that beans do perform like that, but I wouldn't generalize too much. There are many areas that won't do 20 bushels or even less. There are many acres of beans that have been, or will be turned into hay for livestock. To quote that 50 to 60 bushel nonsense is very irresponsible in my opinion. 50 to 60 will only happen if we have the proper conditions from here on. Judging from the previous 3 months I would say that the chances of that are quite unlikely.
