Rethinking Soybean Protein and Seed Quality in Manitoba – Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers

SOYBEAN PROTEIN IS an important seed quality component and export determinant. This importance stems from its nutritional value for both humans in the form of food-grade soybeans and livestock in the form of soybean meal. Most soybeans in Manitoba are grown for crush markets, meaning meal is the intended end-use and oil is a by-product. Soybean protein content has been on the minds of exporters for several years now and more recently, on the minds of farmers, as one trait that could be improved upon.
