So what's the big news with such a little bean? That's exactly what we'll explore as we unravel the history and mystery of this littlelegume. In revealing the historic roots of the soybean, we'll uncover the secret within the plant's roots of converting atmospheric nitrogen into nitrogen in the soil -which naturally fertilizes the plants. We'll explore how this nitrogen link benefits allkinds of creatures in our food chain - including humans. But perhaps one of the more interesting aspects of this little bean is how it's used in all kinds of industries fromfood production to making bio-fuels and plastics.
