The Future of Capturing Value

The U.S. is the No. 1 supplier of soybean meal and oil products around the globe. But even the leader of the pack should focus on continuous improvement. So how can we maintain our competitive edge while also capturing more value from soybean meal and oil? It will take commitment from all parts of the value chain, but the soy checkoff has a vision for making this happen.


Breed for composition and yield


Understand protein and oil value and are paid for it

Pay farmers and elevators on protein and oil value and use identity preservation programs to meet market needs
