Abstract: Soya beans have long been considered a miracle crop for their ease of growing; high concentration of vegetable oil and high protein content; and their ability to reintroduce nitrogen back into the soil. The origin of soya beans dates back to the early 11th century from the eastern half of China. They were introduced to Europe in 1712 and first harvested in the US in 1764. With the advent of the combine harvester, soya bean growth exploded in the US from 1929 to 1939, increasing from 0.23m to 2.25m.
