Soy Sustainability

Ninety-seven percent of U.S. farms are family owned. As stewards of the land, most soybean farmers make it their mission to leave the land better than they found it for future generations. Soybeans are an inherently sustainable crop, offering environmental and agronomic benefits. U.S.-grown soybeans result in a shorter supply chain for the food industry, as well as reduced transportation costs and a lower carbon footprint.

The United Soybean Board (USB), a commodity checkoff program, is made up of 73 farmer-directors who oversee the investments of the soybean checkoff on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers. Checkoff funds are invested in the areas of animal utilization, human utilization, industrial utilization, industry relations, market access, and supply.
