Sustainable soybean practices help you boost production to meet ever increasing worldwide demand, while looking out for future generations.
ISA defines sustainable agriculture as meeting today’s needs while helping future generations to meet their needs by:
- Increasing productivity to meet future needs while decreasing environmental impact.
- Improving access to safe food and feed, and the production of renewable fuel that reduces air quality impacts.
- Improving the social and economic well-being of farmers and the global community.
Sustainability from the Ground Up
Illinois soybean growers have a long history of increasing production, while decreasing the impact made on the environment... and the effect ripples around the world.
Meeting today's sustainability goals is not a new idea. In fact, many Illinois farmers have been making improvements long before sustainability was popular, and we're still at it.
Sustainability looks different on every farm. Soybean farmers use a variety of practices to conserve and improve water and soil quality and to increase plant diversity. Read more about sustainability successes and get facts and figures related to sustainability efforts in this brochure from the United Soybean Board.
Field To Market is a diverse alliance working to create opportunities across the agricultural supply chain for continuous improvements in productivity, environmental quality, and human well-being.
