I wouldn't say that "quad" is a particularly American thing. Most of the Oxford colleges have a number of quads.

Soybeans are used often in rotation with corn because soybeans are nitrogen-fixing (indirectly, symbiotic bacteria on roots). So farmers can use either a corn-soybean-corn-soybean rotation or a larger rotation like corn-soybean-wheat-alfalfa. Alfalfa fixes nitrogen like soybean does. Sadly, soybeans are used in almost everything nowadays because it's so cheap and available... It contains phytoestrogens and has a horrible amino acid profile but is still used in alot of health/protein bars.

Around 70 percent of the soybeans grown in the US are used for animal feed rather than human consumption. In my area of the mid or upper south, we doublecropped wheat and soybeans in the same year. We planted wheat in the fall, harvested it the next June, baled the straw, and then no-till planted a quick-maturing soybean variety after the wheat was harvested. The next spring we planted milo in the field and then sowed wheat after the milo was combined in the early fall. It was a three-way rotation that worked well for us. We planted milo instead of corn because we didn't have irrigation and corn is a heavy feeder and also needs a lot of water.

Seems like I hardly ever see a wheat field here (north central USA). It's all corn and soybeans. Further south you tend to see more.
