A literature review identified known storage recommendations. A survey of pinto bean handlers, processors, and growers determined current practices and parameters expected to affect bean quality in storage. The storage research conducted showed that it is extremely important to store pinto beans at cool temperatures in a dark environment to maintain color and cooking quality. The resistance to airflow of both pinto and navy beans is similar to that of soybeans.
