The development of the soybean to a crop of great importance the past few years has been more rapid, perhaps, than that of any other plant. Most particularly is this true of its rise in the United States. Figures from the U.S. Yearbook show that in 1917 there were only 460,000 acres of the crop planted for all purposes, this however representing a 50% increase over 1916. In 1924, 2,566,000 acres were planted for all purposes, and 1925 figures show a greater increase of 25%. Theacreage for seed production alone increased from 168,000 acres in 1919 to 452,000 acres in 1925 with an average of 262 acres for the five-year period. There were 3,817,800 bushels of seed harvested per year for the five-year period or an average of 14.5 bushel per acre.
