    I run a small Horticultural project for South Kent College and my boss has asked me to do a bussiness plan for predicted income. I need figures on possible plant yields, i.e. how many pounds of beans can I expect to get from 1 plant. Thus far my search on the internet for such figures have proved futile, any suggestions, ideas would be gratefully recieved. cheers.

    Seed catalogues should have this info in the description of the plants. Failing that, if you are a member of the RHS, a direct request to their vegetable experts should yield a sensible anwswer.

    Something here too. Chris, but only pole beans snap mentioned, but can't be runner beans, as I get a lot more than that for a 10ft row. webpages.csus.edu/~sac95710/ Approximate_vegetable_yields.htm
