Soybean Production Plan

Soybean Production Plan پاکستان میں سویابین-کی-کاشت


Soybeans require warm weather with a temperature range of 20-30°C. They are typically grown in tropical and subtropical regions such as District Jhelum, Gujrat, Mandi Bahauddin, Sialkot, Narowal, Sargodha, Attock, Okara, Faisalabad, and some areas of Fort Munro.


Soybeans thrive in well-drained loamy soil with a pH range of 6.0-7.5. They prefer soils rich in organic matter and adequate fertility.

Land Preparation  

The land is plowed, leveled, and ridged to create a suitable seedbed. Weeds and crop residues are removed through tilling and harrowing.

·         2-3 plowing with planking is required.

·         Plant to Plant distance: 3” – 4”

·         Row to Row distance: 12”

Sowing Methods  

Seeds are sown using either manual or mechanical methods.

·         Drill sowing:  Recommended planting density is around 30-40 kilograms per hectare.

·         Bed sowing: Recommended planting density is around 10-12 kilograms per hectare.


·         1st irrigation 8-10 days after sowing

·         Further irrigation should be done with 15 days regular period.

Weed Control        

Weeds are controlled through mechanical methods like hoeing, hand weeding, or herbicide application, depending on the scale of cultivation.

·         Within 24 hours after sowing, spray Pendimethalin by mixing 1 liter in 120 liters of water.

Pest and Disease Control

Common pests and diseases affecting soybeans in Pakistan include aphids, whiteflies, leafhoppers, and soybean mosaic virus. Appropriate pesticides and preventive measures are used.

Growth and Development        

Soybean plants go through various growth stages, including vegetative growth, flowering, pod formation, and maturation. Crop monitoring and appropriate management practices are followed at each stage.


Soybeans are harvested when the plants have reached maturity, and the moisture content in the pods is around 13-15%. Combines or mechanical harvesters are used for efficient harvesting.

Post-Harvest Processing

After harvesting, soybeans are dried to reduce moisture content further. They can be stored in appropriate containers or processed into various soy-based products such as oil, meal, or tofu.
