This potential for high yields makes varieties of vegetable soybeans highly desired for personal consumption as well as in the production of staples around the world.
Late-Mating Soybean Variety: soybeans are renowned for their ability to grow in the final year of planting. However, this characteristic makes them more sensitive than early maturing varieties to environmental conditions. Because of this, soybeans should be harvested during the last couple of weeks of the year. Harvesting earlier than this point can result in low quality crops, or even no harvest. To maximize yield potential, late maturing varieties should be planted in the second or third year of their life cycle. This is a strategy that gives soybean farmers an advantage over other farmers and allows them to compete for the premium in late-maturing categories.
Fresh Green Bean Yield: Soybeans pods should not be kept for sale. They should be consumed fresh. Soybean pods can be used for cooking, baking, freezing, grinding, or making delicious snacks. Soybean beans can also be used to plant specialty crops or create your own compost.
