Transparency Allows Farmers to See Checkoff in Action Overseeing the investments of the soy checkoff to maximize profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers is no small task. To do this job effectively, the United Soybean Board (USB) is committed to transparency, enabling all U.S. soybean farmers to see how their hard-earned dollars are put
Soybean Farmers Play Hero Role If Hollywood made a summer blockbuster about high oleic soy, it would be a feel-good film about how this innovative trait could bring about a future filled with profit potential and higher-value opportunities for U.S. soybean farmers. Luckily, farmers don’t have to wait for that movie – high oleic soybeans
Economic returns of fungicides better in infested fields, says soybean researcher With the discovery of a soybean disease pathogen that has developed resistance to a common fungicide, it’s more important than ever to make sure fungicide applications are necessary. That’s why a soy-checkoff-funded researcher suggests U.S. soybean farmers ensure the presence of disease in fields
