Decline in soybean production is due to decrease in harvested area of ​​1,754 hectares or 38.44 percent, while productivity rose by 0.10 quintals per hectare (0.81 per cent), he said.
Meanwhile, in 2013, soybean production is expected to increase to 3,525 tons of dry beans or an increase of 9 tonnes (0.26 per cent).

In the year 2013 based on forecast figures (Aram I) soybean production is expected to be increased slightly to 3,525 tons, up by 0.26 percent compared to the year 2012.
This increase is expected to be achieved through the increase in harvested area and productivity through a variety of programs the Department of Crop related to an increase in soybean production.
Patterns of different soybean harvest rice and corn harvest patterns, where the pattern occurs at the highest soybean harvest subround II (May to August).
So that the three crops (rice, corn and soybeans) have a different pattern of harvesting the crops with other crops.
As for the highest harvest area in each subround not the same. Pattern soybean harvest in 2013 is estimated to harvest highest in sub round III, in contrast to the pattern of the 2011 harvest and 2012 where the highest harvest in subround II.
Differences in the pattern in which the highest yielding crop in 2013 subround III expected because of the shift in the growing season, he said.
