Soybeans are a warm season, annual legume. They have an upright spreading plant structure. Soybeans don’t tolerate salinity well and use more water than our typical Southwest provides. Soybeans grow quickly and can shade out other weeds. They can contribute to an annual Pollinator blend that serves both as a cover crop and a source for insects.

C:N Ratio: Leaf 14:1, Stem 39:1, Root 34:1
