Soybeans have been shown to produce a good number of nodules when fixing nitrogen, which is beneficial to the crop following. While not producing the highest amount of forage, they still produce adequate amounts if given enough growing degrees and moisture. A nice taproot on these helps in penetrating compaction layers and bringing up subsoil moisture that otherwise, isn’t available.
