U.S. soybean farmers know how much pride they take in protecting both land and water resources. But that doesn’t make it any less important to tell that story to the world. As more customers demand sustainably produced products, it’s important for all soybean farmers to consider practices that will meet those demands for their farms.
U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol
Customers of U.S. soy are growing more concerned about the sustainability of the products they buy. The U.S. soy family has introduced the U.S. Soybean Sustainability Assurance Protocol to demonstrate the sustainability of U.S. soy to international and domestic customers. The protocol is based on existing aggregated data collected from farmers nationwide who participate in national conservation programs. The information serves as proof that the U.S. soy crop is produced under a system of sustainability that includes everything from water conservation to energy use.
