Soybeans are Missouri’s No. 1 crop in both number of acres and value, with more than 5 million acres of soybeans planted across the state each year – that’s greater than the total acreage of all other grain, fiber and vegetable crops in Missouri. Soybeans brought the state $2.2 billion in annual cash receipts.

FARM FACT: Famers in more than 30 states grow soybeans and they are the nation’s top agricultural export.
