We harvest soybeans when they have attained their 85th day, counting from the date of planting. We ensure that they are sizable enough at about 3 or 4 inches long. The feel of the pods at this time ought to be firm and bloated. Another indicator of maturity that we go for is the change in the leaves’ color from deep green to a yellow-tinged green. Our trained farmhands pick each pod at a time before its placement in a shady place.
Before packing them, we clean the pods off any sign of soil or dirt. We then sort only the perfectly formed seeds before we can then transfer them to the cold room.
