Yields an abundant supply of both oil and protein.46; Provides about 35% of the world's human protein.46; An early genetically modified cultivar (GM Soya) was cv. 'Roundup Ready'.36; Monsanto Corp. created cv. 'Roundup Ready', tolerant to glyphosate herbicide.36; Monsanto Corp. markets the herbicide, as "Roundup", and the GM Soya.36; Cultivated in China since ancient times.55; Introduced to the USA in 1853, but much expanded from the 1930's.55; Second most valuable crop in the USA occupying 15% of arable land.55; Immature pods are eaten as a vegetable.55; Mature seeds are sprouted or milled for flour.55; Protein precipitated by coagulents to make bean curd/tofu/doufu.55; Seeds are ground/boiled, then fermented for soy sauces.55; Fermented seeds used to prepare miso, natto (Japan) & tempeh (Indonesia).55; Seeds are used for cooking oil and soy bean milk.55; Cultivated widely; unknown in the wild.; perhaps derived from the wild Glycine12; soja Sieb. & Zucc.12; In "Flora URSS" two dubious species, G. gracilis & G. hispida, are recognized58; cilis (Skvortsov) Teplyak. from Far East and subsp. manshurica (Enken) Teplyak.,58; very widespread under cultivation in N. Eurasia. The latter subspecies was a58; base for most of cultivars. Introduced and alien to many Provinces58; Seeds very rich in protein; one of the world's most important leguminous crops2; Cultivated throughout the world.2; May be a cultigen derived from G. ussuriensis.3
