soybean-production-factsMinnesota is a great place to grow soybeans. On average, Minnesota farmers plant over 7 million acres of beans each year. In fact, Minnesota is the third largest soybean producing state in the nation.

Each year farmers produce about 3 billion bushels of beans. About half of those soybeans are kept close to home where they’re processed into soybean meal to feed livestock. The other half is shipped overseas. Soybeans are the top export crop in all of Minnesota!
