Glycine max

Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. It is hardy to zone (UK) 8. The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by Insects. Glycine max is a ANNUAL growing to 0. Suitable for: light (sandy) and medium (loamy) soils and prefers well-drained soil.

During the Chou dynasty in China, fermentation techniques were discovered that allowed soybean to be prepared in more easily digestible forms such as tempeh, . Waqas MK, Akhtar N, Mustafa R, Jamshaid M, Khan HM, Murtaza G. Table 1), and represent the most important plant source of vegetable oil and protein in the world. Having originated in East Asia soy is now cultivated world-wide with greatest production in the U. Though only a minor proportion of the crop is eaten directly by humans, soybean is a . GmGDB is being developed as a part of our NSF-funded project Cyberinfrastructure for (Comparative) Plant Genome Research Through PlantGDB (PI: Volker Brendel). Soybeans can be traced back to China as early as the 11th century B.

According to Chinese tradition, people of this region were nomadic . Stems robust, erect, sometimes ± twining at apex, ± ribbe densely brown hirsute. Soybeans are drought-tolerant, nitrogen-fixing plants that enrich the soil. They grow on short bushes to about knee high and are planted and harvested similarly.

Native Status: CAN W LI PR I. Other Common Names: reseeding soybean wild soybean. Soybean is cultivated throughout the temperate and tropical regions, and is one of the most significant sources of protein and oils globally. It has escaped cultivation to become weedy in some parts of eastern North America, although it is rarely encountered in New England. The soybean genome contains 20 .

Factors including genetics, fertilization, and climatic conditions, can alter the biomass composition of soybean seeds, consequently impacting their market value and usage. This study specifically determined the content of protein and oil, as well as the composition of proteinogenic amino acids and fatty . It features white to purple-pink flowers and trifoliate leaves.

Flowers bloom from mid to late summer.
