The majority of the soybeans grown in the United States are from seeds that have been enhanced through biotechnology. And this science has allowed U.S. soybean farmers to grow more crops on fewer acres using fewer resources. The need to understand biotech’s positive impact on agriculture has never been more important, so it’s smart for U.S. soybean farmers to stay up-to-date on this critical topic.

Biotechnology gains acceptance beyond U.S. borders With Chinese customers buying more than half of U.S. soy exports, they must not have concerns about biotechnology, right? Actually, the opposite is true. Many Chinese consumers, especially moms,
Genetic diversity in wild soybeans could improve today’s yield, composition, stress resistance and more Looking across this soybean-research plot in eastern North Carolina, the ancient ancestors of modern soybeans are nearly unrecognizable to the human
Soybean researcher hopes to borrow genes from wild lines to improve yield, composition and pest resistance in varieties that farmers grow Lots of soybean researchers work with soybean genes to improve yield, composition and resistance
Checkoff funding essential to soybean-research efforts, breeders say The soy checkoff is always looking for new ways to improve U.S. soybean production and maximize farmer profitability. An example of that is studying the diverse genetics
