The benefits in growing green beans

  • Green beans are a 52-56 day crop
  • Green beans can be planted conventionally (no-till)
  • Typically, green beans are spaced 30-36 inches apart in their rows
  • Unlike some crops, green beans have effective pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides available
  • Seed comes treated with fungicide and insecticide
  • Green bean fertilizer requirements are traditionally less than other crops

The benefits in growing with C&E Farms

  • No specialized equipment is needed to become a growing partner.
  • Fast payouts of 35-40 days equates to a better cash flow early in the season.
  • Ordering larger volumes of seed allows us to negotiate for better prices, and provides consistent seed counts and higher germination rates. These savings are then passed onto the growers.
  • The planting schedule is designed to prevent bottlenecks, creating a more stable market.
  • We sell to the top buyers and companies in the produce industry, and we have the ability to sell to processors if necessary.
