FGIS has noticed an increased presence of Soybeans of Other Colors (SBOC) for inspections conducted during fiscal year 2022. SBOC is one of several grade-determining factors in soybean inspection and has been a part of the soybean standard since 1940. To help keep stakeholders informed, we are providing the following resources. If you have additional questions, please contact FGIS.ODA@usda.gov .
