Each crop has its own set of requirements. Fertilizer requirements vary from crop to crop, and so do soil, weather, climate and water requirements. Consider the points below before growing pole beans. Apart from the ability to cultivate the crop, it is also important to understand the market for a good profit. If there are already many people growing yard beans in your area, chances are there is a surplus in the market which is driving the price down. If the product is in short supply, the price tends to get high. Check with your mandi and local market for the availability of whole yard beans and also their acceptability. If there are customers for the product but not enough product, you can fill the gap and make a profit from growing Backyard beans.
Climate for Cultivation: Yardlong Bean prefers tropical weather. Warm weather is best. The plants will do well with temperatures up to 35-degrees celsius but above that it will stress the plant. They do not tolerate frost so cold weather is not preferred at all. You may still be able to grow broad beans at temperatures up to 40 but below 18 degrees is not best at all.
Essential conditions to grow long beans
Now we are going to see what conditions are needed to grow long beans. Although long beans do not rely heavily on these essential conditions, we could have a much longer, healthier and tastier harvest if we could supply them properly.
Soil is the most important environmental factor when starting any kind of plant.
Don’t Transplant Long Beans
It is important to always plant long beans directly into the soil. It is best if you do not transplant these legumes because they have a fragile root system.
Make sure to add long bean seeds to the eye looking down.

Yardlong beans can be planted directly into garden soil without germinating them indoors first. However, they are susceptible to cold weather and the soil temperature must be at least 60°F (16°C) to germinate. As a result, they are best planted as a mid to late spring crop and when there is any chance of frost. Choose a part of your garden that receives plenty of light. Yardlong beans grow best in full sun and will need at least 6 hours of sunlight per day for best growth.
