Title: Soybean expansion in Ontario linked to better varieties and good economic returns
Author: Hume, D.J.; Pearson, C.J.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Since 1975, soybean production expanded across Ontario due to the development of cold-tolerant varieties, a farming system that used existing equipment, and good economic returns for farmers. The corn-soybean-wheat rotation system has reduced the need for fertilizers and pesticides, and encouraged the environmentally-friendly no-till practice.
