Maple Arrow

75 to 125 days — The plants reach thirty to thirty six inches tall and pods contain three seeds each. The beans are small, slightly oval, and yellow in color. 

Historically, this is a very important variety and is the parent of many subsequent varieties. 'Maple Arrow' is credited with revolutionizing soy production in Canada. Although soy was introduced into Canada in the 1890s, it was not until the release of 'Maple Arrow' in 1976 that field production took off and soy became a serious commodity there.

It was bred as a cross between 'Harosoy 63' and 'Holmberg 840-1-3' and in the USDA's collection as accession number PI 548593.[1] Each packet contains 25 to 30 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Soybeans are a tender plant and should be sown after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Planting them at about the same time as corn is a good rule.

Sow seeds about one inch deep, three to four inches apart. Although you can plant in rows, they can be planted densely and allowed to form a canopy. This will help control weed growth. Soybeans are tolerant of drought and poor soil since they fix nitrogen. They will, however, benefit from fertile soil.

Soybean flowers are perfect (self-fertile) and cross pollination is almost non-existent, making saving seed easy. Allow pods to fully develop and dry on the plants.
