SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Agriculture anticipates South Dakota’s dry edible bean production in 2014 will be down 16 percent from last year.

The department said on Wednesday that it anticipates 2014’s statewide yield will be 1,500 pounds per acre, which is a drop of 500 pounds per acre from 2013. That’s despite a 1,400-acre uptick in harvested area from 2013.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service anticipates the total crop will be 194,000 hundredweight in 2014.
