Is that the crop I see grown in many parts of Union County? It's kind of short and bushy until this time of year when it yellows, then browns and dries before harvest.

Hmmm, soybeans grown in NC, interesting. Sounds like you're right, in late Sept the crops start to yellow.

Thanks for the link nascarnancy. It seems UC grows considerably more soybeans than neighboring counties. It seems like it's all over our area, I see more soybean fields than corn or any other crop.

The same fields are also used for corn and wheat. I pass this land once a week on my way to my wife's parents house and they seem to cycle through all 3 crops. Probably plant whatever is selling for the most profit.

Yes on 84 there they cycle thru all three crops. I think it enriches the soil.

Beans, or certain ones at least, fix nitrogen in the soil.
