Charles Fry says he hates the fact that the United States imports more than 100,000 tons of the soybean, called edamame (pronounced ed-ah-mommy), with 85 to 90 percent coming from China.
Fry says he is encouraged by the fact that they intend to see farmers plant the edible soybean on 1,200 acres in 2012 and as many as 4,000 acres in 2013 — all to be grown for the American consumer market.
