Decade of the Bean

If the last 100 years have been the “Century of Corn”, Roy Fuchs thinks the next 10 years will be the “Decade of the Bean.”

“When we look back at this time in 2022, we will have seen this has been a transformational decade for soybeans, says Fuchs, Monsanto global oilseeds technology lead.

Compared to corn, soybeans have been on the short-end of the stick when it comes to traits derived from biotechnology. That will change. In the next decade, Fuchs predicts soybeans will likely have 10 to 12 biotechnology-derived traits, with a similar number of traits coming from advanced breeding.
