In Mississippi soy beans are usually planted in May and harvested in September and October.
Here the soy beans are left in the field until the plants die and the bean pods are dry.
If harvested while the beans are still green, they are marketed as Edamame Beans
Last year Mississippi farmers produced 72,980,000 bushels of soy beans.
