Soja Bean seed

Seed growing:

If handled right, Soy Beans give a profitable return when grown for seed. As the pods break up when fully ripe, late cutting causes loss, especially with the Medium Green variety which shatters the seed badly. The plants should be cut for seed ,,N-hen the pods begin to turn yellow. One bushel of seed should be sown to the acre.

Quality of seed:

In some varieties the seeds are like peas in shape and size, in others they are twice as large, and in still others they are like small beans. The colour may be yellow, white, green, brown or black. The seed is rich in protein and oil, and can be used in the same way as other concentrated protein and oil feeds.
