NDSU Releases New Soybean Variety
North Dakota State University has developed a new soybean-breeding program. This new soybean is intended for high-protein tofu and soymilk specialty markets. Ted Helms, NDSU soybean breeder believes that this soybean will have better yield and quality for these specialty uses. The soybean has a consistent high protein content. This soybean has a higher protein content, matures three days earlier and will produce 6 bushels per acre less. The earlier maturing helps reduce the risk of a fall freeze.
