He found soybeans and corn to have a range of soluble carbohydrates protecting the seed's cell viability.
Strains that continue nodal development after flowering are termed "indeterminates" and are best suited to climates with longer growing seasons.Like many legumes, soybeans have ability to fix nitrogen from its gaseous, atmospheric form (N Together, protein and soybean oil content account for 56% of dry soybeans by weight (36% protein and 20% fat, table).The remainder consists of 30% carbohydrates, 9% water and 5% ash (table).For human consumption, soybeans must be cooked with "wet" heat to destroy the trypsin inhibitors (serine protease inhibitors).Raw soybeans, including the immature green form, are toxic to all monogastric animals.These cotyledons both act as leaves and as a source of nutrients for the immature plant, providing the seedling nutrition for its first 7 to 10 days.
Subsequent to this first pair, mature nodes form compound leaves with three blades.
The fruit is a hairy pod that grows in clusters of three to five, each pod is 3–8 cm (1.2–3.1 in) long and usually contains two to four (rarely more) seeds 5–11 mm in diameter.
Soybean seeds come in a wide variety sizes and hull colors such black, brown, yellow, and green.
The main countries growing soybeans are the United States (32% of world total, 2016 forecast), Brazil (31%) and Argentina (18%). This is the first stage of root growth and occurs within the first 48 hours under ideal growing conditions.
The first photosynthetic structures, the cotyledons, develop from the hypocotyl, the first plant structure to emerge from the soil.
Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals.
