Soya beans is a very important plant in Nigeria because of its protain content, it a leguminous vegetable of the pea family and it grows in tropical, subtropical, and temperate climates and Nigeria is one of them. basically soya beans can grow in almost every part of Nigeria.
it contains over 36% protein, 30% carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. so i am going to teach you best practices and simple techniques to follow in other to save money, time and at same time have high yield.
You may see in alot of publications that No-Till farming help you save cost, but what they will not tell you is that you will end up spending more on weed control because with no-till farming, weeds will later be a serious problem.
so you may clear the syrups in the farm by cutting them off with a cutlas or use a buldozer to clear them for a bigger farm.
For a small farm, you can do ridges and the cost of 40meters long ridge in the place i practice is around 180 naira to 200 naira, which is not actually cost effective. but for a tractor to help you clear, we pay around 30,000 naira for an hecter which is better and more cost effective. the rigdes does not have to be big and should have center spaces between them of atleast 76cm.
Soya beans can be planted early april with a spacing of 10cm X 75cm. put two seeds per row.
