    you're right about the number of beans, 3 is the norm, 4 is becoming much more common, and you're right 5 is rare and amazing, farmers are planting at much higher populations, so soybean production has gone crazy since the 70's, as soil fertility has gotten so much better and weed control is truly down to a science...

    planting and harvesting grain crops is a very big gamble, few growing seasons are perfect, moisture, sunlight, insects, weeds, high soil moisture or low soil moisture, and any and every combination of the above affect yields every year, so American farmers, like farmers around the world pray and hope for the best...

    You better start praying now, because corn and soybean planting tends to occur earlier every year, LOL

    there are lots of food soybean products, as well as grain products for livestock, so the Chinese Soy Bean is indeed and extremely versatile crop, grown successfully in many different climates and soils... genetically maximizing your soybeans for your soil and weather are tremendously helpful to substantially increase yields, or at least minimize loses...

    Actually no, not for soil fertility for soybeans anyways.
    Soybeans actively fertilizes itself like clover through a process called Root nodule symbioses. Japan from the past did something like rotation system farming by planting soybeans at the edge of rice fields so the nitrogen byproducts seeps into the rice patties.

    You probably don't realize it, but Central Obamastan has the highest soybean yields in the Nation, as the Haybusa riders say, its not bragging if its true, Iowa is usually a close second, with Minnesota coming in third... this past spring, summer, and fall were hard on Minnesota and Iowa with cool temperatures, less than normal sun, and heavier than normal rainfall, causing late planting and late harvest to exacerbate the problem

    Soybean yields in the early to late 70's would typically run from 25 to 35 bushels per acre, now they are 45 to 60 or so bushels per acre, so soybean varieties have increased their fertility,, and the highest per acre yield in Illinois set a record around 108 bushel per acre

    I like green peas (LOL! not Greenpeace!) when they're still smaller (a pod isn't filled yet if you know what I mean), full of juice

    This adds ice on the snow. I am watching this closely and do not have any conclusion yet.

    So true, a lot of brands did not survive China is because they did not understand the local markets needs. A decade back when Shanzhai is everywhere, it was not just copying, they actually added more functionality on dumb phones and other appliances, which cause them to flourish
