Toasting soya on your own farm

Soybeans are an excellent source of protein for human consumption as well as animal feed. However, they also contain digestive inhibitors which must be deactivated by heat treatment before consumption. The toasting of soybeans is a possible method for this. This video shows how the processing of soybeans works on the farm of Johannes Edhofer. He cultivates and processes the soy himself and feeds it to his laying hens on his farm. 

Mechanical weed control

Experts explain what must be considered in weed control when sowing your soybean crop: what measures need to be taken when, which machines need to be used and how, and much more.
