They’re a blip in the data when they first show up in South Dakota in the statistics from the year 1939. That’s the year when a few farmers in the state plant a total of 2,000 acres of that new crop, soybeans. There’s no record of how many acres they harvest; but the next year, 1940, farmers plant 4,000 acres, and harvest 1,000; in 1941, they plant 6,000 acres, and harvest 2,000.

In 1954, the acres devoted to soybeans in the state surge well past 100,000 for the first time.
