Soybean Genetics Newsletter


Almost all of the soybeans grown in Australia are found in Queensland and New South Wales, with very minor acreages in northern Victoria . The area sown to soybean in 1973 was about 28,350 hectares in Queensland and about 8,100 hectares in New South Wales. Important growing areas in Queensland include The Darling Downs; the South Burnett region (Kingaroy, Nanango, Wondai, Murgon); the Lockyer, Fassifern and Brisbane River Valleys; the Atherton Tablelands; and the region around Bundaberg .
