CORPORATE PARTNERS

The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) values the continued support of our industry partners. The ISA checkoff program represents the interests of more than 43,000 soybean farmers in Illinois to help fund research, outreach and promotion efforts. Legislative, regulatory and advocacy efforts are channeled through the Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG). These non-checkoff-funded efforts support the interests of our membership in Illinois and on Capitol Hill. These initiatives are executed by our organization and its members, but not without the valued support of our industry partners. ISA is excited to provide an opportunity to our corporate partners to network in the areas of soybean value chain development, research and legislation. Partners will be able to connect with our ISA farmer-members and Illinois soybean farmers. Corporate partnership levels and benefits are determined by checkoff and non-checkoff contributions to ISA from the previous year.
