The US is the largest producer of soy crops and one of the reasons is because it helps refresh the land after other crops are grown, especially corn. So usually farmers rotate between corn and soy. If it wasn't for soy, then farmers would have to refresh the land by growing elsewhere and thus would need more land for crops versus needing less due to soy.
