An article on New York native Peter Golbitz, 50, and his Bar Harbor-based company Soyatech, a national giant in information on the soybean industry. Golbitz has been consulted by NASA and recently won the 2004 Soyfoods Industry Leadership Award. Soyfood sales have doubled since 1997. Golbitz, who plans to ally Soyatech with companies in other nations to share resources, is also committed to the potential of soybeans in eradicating world hunger. He is planning pilot projects to that end, first in Africa and then in Central America. Publishing the "Soya & Oilseed Bluebook," the bible of the soy industry, accounts for about 60 percent of his revenues. Although soy production has increased in the U.S., many farmers in Maine who were planting soy have switched to the more profitable canola, which is also a better rotational crop for potatoes.
