Here's the big tractor waiting to plant. Sorry I didn't get a picture of the planting.
Here is what the field looks like in July or August...nice and green
The middle to late September...Almost ready to combine
Here is one farmer combining the beans. Some farmers load the beans into this kind of wagon and then it is hauled to either their farm and put in bins or to the elevator in town.
Other farmers use these huge wagons and then they are emptied into the big grain trucks below
The farmers work well into the night. Sorry for the quality of this photo.
This is what the field looks like when they are finished.
It costs a lot of money to grow the beans. The huge equipment is expensive. Then there is the cost of seed, the fuel to run the tractors, combines, and big semis. Plus the hours of work that goes into it. The soybean harvest has pretty much wrapped up and now the farmers are onto picking corn.
I hope you have learned a little about what goes into growing soy beans.
