Max Armstrong shares more history of U.S. soybean exports

Max Armstrong continues his conversation about the history of soybeans, including the beginning of exports in 1931 from the United States. But it wasn't until 1969 that more than half of the crop was exported, which was a first for the U.S. soybean industry and those have grown until China became he largest purchaser or soybeans. Max shares more of that history.
