Soybean is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean which has numerous uses, including many packaged meals and animal feed. The main countries that grow soybeans today are the USA, Brazil and Argentina. Soybeans grow best when the average temperature is between 21°C and 26°C, and requires 400mm to 500mm of rainfall in a season.
After being harvested, dry grains are much more durable than other staple foods, and this durability has made grains well suited to industrial agriculture, since they can be mechanically harvested, stored for long periods and transported across the globe, thus major global commodities markets exist for grains.
At AP Commodities, we source and market grains and their respective by-products (meal and oil) on behalf of producers and traders to importer and industrial users.
