Soybeans belong to the oilseed crops category and are among the major agricultural crops sowed in the U.S. The leading soybean producing state in the U.S. is Illinois, with over 672 million bushels produced yearly. The state of Illinois is followed by the states of Iowa and Minnesota, respectively. The growing popularity and thus demand for soy food products is met by growing production volumes. During the last decade, the production of soybeans has increased continuously in the U.S. The U.S. is the second-largest producer of soybeans worldwide, after Brazil. Due to such high production values, the U.S. is also among the second largest exporters of soybeans worldwide. Only Brazil exports more soybeans. Nearly 56 million metric tons of soybeans are exported from the U.S. yearly, while Brazil exports almost 91 million metric tons.
