Agriculture is omnipresent along the highways connecting our Fairmonts and St. Peters, New Ulms and Wasecas.
Something we all see, but few interact with. At least so we think.
Because when you think of Mankato, you should think of soybeans.
The two mountainous structures that dominate both the northern and southern edges of the city – they process soybeans. And they impact so many businesses and so many people.
In North America, no city processes more soybeans than Mankato. Not even a contest and the growth has only accelerated. Minnesota has increased soybean acreage by 50% since the 80s, and about doubled their yield.
