Lance, I dont seem to have the right program to open your document.
I am wanting to try a few maturity lengths. But my main field should be in the group 1 area. I'd like to try a small plot of low group 2s and a couple plots of double 00 and 0s.
Last year the varieties I planted had a high shatter index number, meaning on a 1 to 10, 10 hammer and chisel, they were a 7 and 8. I lost over half on the ground waiting to direct cut them. Cant have that happen again. So I need the shorter maturity plots to have very good shatter resistance.
Thanks. If you have any tips for the program to open your document, please let me know.

Looks like Legend and Stine have some maturities that fit the bill. I'll go to their sites and look them up. Thanks.
Last year I grew a couple acre plot of the pioneer 91M10s. They were the best beans I had, and I do not want to judge them or their performance based on last years attempt, as it was my lack of experience that was more the cause of the issues than the bean's characteristics.
I should also try to plant them in rows this year instead of close spaced drilling. ?

Most often it seems that narrow row beans have a yield advantage over 30" rows in northern areas (more sunlight), but it seems there is an added population with the narrow rows to get a good stand (drill vs planter).
Maybe some side-by-sides if you have time?
We grew 91M10's last year for a premium contract and will do it again this coming year. Never had a bean that put on 4 beans per pod as much as that variety did (maybe weather?) and the seed size at harvest was unbelievable. Even though we had one of the coldest and driest springs in many years, it seemed to be a strong bean out of the ground and throughout the season.
Hoping for more timely moisture during 2010 to see the true potential of this bean. Wherever it was on heavier soil with a higher water holding capacity it would get tall and lodge, but it also had a nice yield bump to go with it (50+ vs 35 avg for 2009).
