Ag by the Numbers – Soy Many Colors

Posted: April 21, 2020

Soybeans can be made into many things including animal feed, vegetable oil, plastic, biodiesel, and… CRAYONS.

One acre of soybeans can produce 82,368 crayons. DeKalb County grows 118,000 acres of soybeans. That could make 9.7 billion crayons.

That’s a lot of coloring!
