AdFarm Pinto Beans: Still hold Promise

Above:  Farmer Fred is checking the Pinto Beans for white mold.
Above:  The beans are looking good, but white mold has been showing up in the area. Crop consultants advise spraying. 
Above:  The heat and rain that has given us this heavy crop causes heavy dew. The thick upper growth means these beans never really dry out and are at risk for white mold.
Above:  Infestation of white mold could quickly cut the yield potential. The beans have filled in the area between the rows and we cannot drive our sprayer up and down the field without causing too much damage. Farmer Fred called to have the crop sprayed by air.
