Soya Beans

It is a well-known fact that Nigeria is the largest producer of soya beans in Africa.  However, production hasn’t been attained at its full capacity because soya bean farming in Nigeria is largely operated by small farm holders who grow the crop as a minor crop amongst other major crops such as maize, beans, cassava, etc.

Do you also know that the global demand for this protein-rich crop nears about eleven million tons? And what’s more? Africa’s annual expenditure of soya beans is about 619 thousand tons. 

Soya beans are an edible legume highly famed for being nutritious; as they rich in protein, calcium, fiber, iron, magnesium, and other enriching vitamins and minerals.  Soya beans are also versatile, as they can be cooked, fermented, dried, and converted into products like milk, flour, tofu, and more.

It is a pod-bearing plant, widely grown for its edible bean which can be used for varying purposes. According to some experts, soya beans can be classified as an oleaginous plant. Naturally, soya beans can be grown only in tropical, subtropical and moderate climates. As for its pods, stalks, and foliage, they are usually coated with brown or grey fleece, and this is measured to be about two meters in length.

Additionally, after the foliage falls, the beans begin to mellow. Soya beans’ farming is considered a highly profitable business venture in Nigeria; and it can provide employment opportunities for about a third of the Nigerian populace.
