In Iowa, August is soybeans time to shine
Gov. Terry Branstad has declared August “Iowa Soybean Month,” and it’s no wonder, as Iowa is the nation’s leading soybean producing state, according to United States Department of Agriculture.
In the 2012 issue of Soy Stats, Iowa was said to have produced 466.12 million bushels of soybeans in 2011, with Illinois coming in second with 416.42 bushels. Iowa’s figures from 2011 carry an estimated value of $5.5 billion.
Iowa Soybean Association President Mark Jackson is proud of the declaration and Iowa’s soybean producing ability and said as much in a recent press release.
