Soybeans Seed Planting Information:

Soybeans are not cold hardy plants. Do not plant until soil is warm. Soybeans have a harder time sprouting than other beans. Plant your Soybeans outdoors directly in the garden, 14 days after your last frost date, and when night time temperatures are 75 F and soil temperature is 65 F. Use black plastic to warm the soil a few weeks in advance of planting seeds. Soybeans do not like soil that is too moist. Plants can grow 12 to 24" tall.

Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil or you may experience poor germination!

Soil Requirements:

Requires rich fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Soybeans do not like soil that is too moist and do not like standing water. Water during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro. Too much nitrogen interferes with production yields.

Harvest Tips:

For fresh soybeans, pick as you would pick shelling peas. To store dried soybeans, wait until the pods are dry.
