Cutting Mayocoba Beans for Harvest

One of the first steps of bean harvest is to cut the bean plants and leave them in a windrow to dry before combining them. Although direct harvest (making just one pass through the field) is becoming more prevalent, many farmers in our area still harvest in this two-step fashion. They allow the beans to dry down naturally for about 1 week in their windrows and then return to combine them and bring them into our facility to be cleaned and bagged.
