The "Big Golden Minnesota M" was a soybean crop art display on the St. Paul campus in the summer of 2014. Ph.D. student Ben Campbell and several technicians in the Minnesota Soybean Breeding program planted out a golden "Minnesota M" using a mutant soybean line, MinnGold, that has yellow leaves. After the field was planted with green leafed soybeans, the Minnesota M was traced out in the field. Then the green soybean plants within the Minnesota M were removed, and yellow leafed soybeans were planted.
