If you look closely at the photograph below (click to enlarge), you can see that there are no pods on the soybeans below about 6 inches from the ground. This is how the soybeans were able to make it though the dry weather and hold on until they got some rain. Soybean plants abort blooms and pods when they are under stress. This years soybeans just refused to support pod formation until it was time.
