    ...the farmland which is devoted mainly to growing soybean.

    be devoted to 這是一個片語

    此時的to 是一個介系詞

    要發現to後面的動詞要加ing

    就必須靠自己去摸索囉!!

    [例子]

    動詞常以ving為受詞:

    admit, appreciate, avoid, complete, sonsider, dislike, delay, deny, enjoy,

    escape, finish, imagine, mind, miss, postpone, practice, quit, resist

    動詞後以ving或不定詞:

    like, love, hate, dread, begin, start, cease, continue, intend prefer, bear,

    endure

    動詞片語:

    There is no +Ving

    It is of no use +Ving/toV

    can't help+Ving

    feel like+Ving

    be busy in+Ving

    be wroth+Ving

    It is worth while +Ving/toV

    need/want/require+Ving

    be above+Ving

    of one's own+Ving

    No+Ving

    go +Ving

    do...+Ving

    have difficulty/trouble/a hard time+ Ving

    have fun/a good time+Ving

    come near+Ving

    Do you mind+ Ving

    How/What about+Ving

    What do you say to +Ving

    prevent/keep/stop/hinder+Ving

    somebody spend時間/金錢+Ving/on N

    It goes without saying that +子句

    be/get/become+used to +Ving

    Look forward to+Ving

    pay attentionto

    apply oneself to+Ving

    in addition to +Ving

    be accustomed to+Ving

    be equal to+Ving

    according to +Ving

    in/with regard to+Ving

    owing to+Ving

    thanks to+Ving

    take to+Ving

    prefer....to+Ving

    when it comes to=speak of+Ving

    with a view to=with an eye to +Ving

    devote...to=devote oneself to=be devoted to+Ving

    object to=be oppose to=have an obejction to+Ving

    Here, in the example clause, the word 'to' is used as a preposition.

    That is why the word 'grow' need to be added 'ing' at the end.

    The formula is as followed,

    when 'to' is a part of the following verb, 'to (a verb)' is an indefinite word, no 'ing' is added.

    On the other hand, when 'to' is a part of the word group before itself, the word after 'to' should be a noun or a noun equevilent; if the word after 'to' is a verb, 'ing' is added at the end of the verb to form a 'ving' so that the verb with 'ing' is used as a noun.

    因為 to 在這當介係詞

    這沒甚麼公式

    需要記有哪些 to 當介係詞

    例如

    你這句的

    devote to + Ving

    look forward to + Ving

    be/get used to + Ving

    還有很多

    剩下的只能靠你自己摸索了
