Soybean is an important global crop and processed soybean is the largest source of protein feed and second largest source of vegetable oil in the world.
The major portion of the global and domestic crop is solvent-extracted with hexane to yield soy oil and obtain soymeal, which is widely used in the animal feed industry. It is estimated that above 85% of the output is crushed worldwide.
Though, a very small proportion of the crop is consumed directly by humans, soybean products appear in a large variety of processed foods.
The cultivation of soybean is successful in climates with hot summers, with temperatures between 20°C to 30°C being optimum. Temperatures below 20°C and over 40°C are found to retard growth significantly.
It can grow in a wide range of soils, with optimum growth in moist alluvial soils with a good organic content.
Modern soybean varieties generally reach a height of around 1 m (3 ft), and take 80-120 days from sowing to harvesting.
