Description

Origin:

North China, Japan

Growing tips

As an extremely heat-loving specimen among the legumes, soybeans attach importance to a location in warm locations. It does not cope well with harsh sites and late frosts. It quickly suffers frost damage if sown there too early. Locations in a sunny to semi-shady position are well suited. The soybean needs a slightly warm subsoil to thrive. It should be moderately heavy and its structure should prevent waterlogging. Furthermore, a slightly acidic to neutral, calcareous soil is recommended.
