War and immediate post-war demands for soybeans have been strong. Farmers in Iowa and throughout the Corn Belt have responded to these demands by greatly expanding their output of soybeans. Soybean production in Iowa in 1945 was more than triple 1940 production. About 43 million bushels of beans were harvested from the 1945 crop. And approximately 35 million bushels are expected from the 1946 crop.
