Bob Colson, president of Cheriton, Va.-based C&E Farms, which packs up to 700,000 bushels of green beans for customers along the I-95 corridor, also reports a good start to the 2012 season.

To combat average green bean prices and stimulate movement, Colson said he has been offering chain stores good ad pricing to keep retails down.
