Bioengineered Beans: The future of soybeans is here!

The future of soybeans is here with bioengineered beans.

After more than a decade, the University of Illinois has altered soybean plants to increase the efficiency of photosynthesis. They say the results show greater yields, which is important as food insecurity around the world expands.

An average yield increase was 24.5 percent compared to a set of wild-type soybeans. The next step will be a field trial where the transgenic soybeans will be planted.
