Indiana Soybeans

Seeing a golden sea of soybean and cornfields in Northern Indiana is commonplace, however, I did not realize that we were the 3rd largest producing state.
 







 According to Indiana Farm Direct, “Indiana is best known for its soybean, corn, and pork production. Indiana is the 3rd largest soybean producing state in the US, producing 9.5% of the entire US soybean crop. Indiana soybean yields have been among the highest in the nation in recent years. Almost a third of the Hoosier soybean crop is exported onto the world market. Indiana has one of the most active soybean grower associations. The Indiana Soybean Board has been responsible for developing soycandles and soycrayons.”
