Caption: Soybean crop. Soybean or soya plants, Glycine max, growing amongst the stubble of a harvested wheat crop, Triticum sp.. This crop rotation is a natural way of allowing the soil to recover its nutrients. Soybeans, a type of legume, have Rhizo- bium japonicum bacteria in their roots which convert (fix) atmospheric nitrogen into chemicals which act as fertilisers. These soybean plants were sown from the air before the wheat was harvested, and began to germinate soon after the crop was cut. This aerial sowing reduces the time that the farmer has to wait before harvesting the soybeans. Photographed in Ohio, USA.
