This Years US Soybeans Have Lowest Protein Levels Ever

An American Soybean Association and US Soybean Export Council survey indicates that this season's US soybean crop has the lowest protein content on record.

At just 34%, the average protein content of US soybeans represents the single-lowest level found since the survey was initiated in 1986, says the report.

Precipitation levels reaching 150-300% of normal across much of the western half of the U.S. soybean belt are largely to blame the report concludes.
