Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Beans, Soy



CULTURE: After last frost date plant 8 seeds/ft., 1" deep, rows 15-30" apart. Upright plants are easier to cultivate. For nitrogen-fixing inoculants, use those formulated for soybean crops.
FRESH SOYBEAN HARVEST AND COOKING: Most pods ripen at once. Clip plants near base when the beans are plump in the pods. Beans attain their highest fresh weight just as pods begin to lose their bright green color. Hand-strip remaining leaves and tie small bunches of plants for retailing. Shelling tips: strip pods, rinse, and steam or boil about five minutes, or until tender. Package for freezing at this point.
DRY SOYBEAN HARVEST: When at least 90% of the leaves have fallen and the pods are dry, pull the plants out by the roots. Complete drying under cover if weather is wet.
THRESHING: See "Dry Bean" Growing Information.
STORAGE: Make sure beans are dry (max. 9% moisture) and then store in a cool place. Freeze dry beans to control storage insect pests.
AVG. SEEDING RATE: 1 lb./225', 5 lb./1,000', 87 lb./acre at 8 seeds/ft. and rows 30" apart.
SEED SPECS: SEEDS/LB.: See individual varieties.
PACKET: 100 seeds sows 11'-14'.
