Protecting Soybean Quality
In the context of soybean production, quality refers to many different factors. Protecting soybean quality is a season-long effort that includes plant health and development, as well as composition. Those efforts culminate at harvest, when handling and storage practices maintain the quality provided and set by plant genetics and agronomics. A variety of checkoff-funded resources, tools and research projects address various aspects of soybean quality, including those that require focus during harvest.
Soybean quality encompasses many production factors, from soybean health and development in pods to condition in storage, and from composition to contamination of foreign materials. Soybean farmers and industry stakeholders share some of the ways they protect soybean quality. Share aspects of quality prioritized on your farm or your segment of the soybean industry.
