Soybean is an important crop for farmers. Each year, Kansas farmers usually grow about 3 million acres of soybean and they are worth more than $500 million. Soybean is used in almost everything we use every day. Soybean meal is feed to livestock, people eat soy products, soybean is used in crayons, newspaper ink, and probably more than a thousand other ways. But we donít normally think about how soybean is used nor do we think about how farmers grow the crop. Well, we want you to learn about soybean production and have some fun in the process. We will be watching a field on the K-State Agronomy Farm from planting all the way through harvest this coming fall. We hope you enjoy it.
