The Faces of U.S. Soy Farming: The Business of Farming

Having a consistent supply of high-quality, sustainably produced soybeans is vitally important to international soy buyers, and U.S. soy farmers are up to the challenge. Through the use of technology and conservation practices, soy producers are growing more food on less land, and they are improving their environment at the same time with these innovative methods.

In this video series produced by the Wisconsin Soybean Association, U.S. soy producers demonstrate their innovative management practices and reveal why they chose to help grow the world’s food supply.
