BLOOMINGTON, ILL – June 6, 2021 – The latest issue of Illinois Field & Bean, entirely dedicated to Egypt as a growing market for U.S. soy exports, provides a comprehensive exploration of Illinois soy’s journey from the Midwest to the Middle East, and all the work happening behind-the-scenes.

“It may be a surprise to many to learn that Egypt has stepped forward as a country ripe for growth as a foreign market for U.S. soybeans,” says ISA Director of Communications, Rachel Peabody. “But Egypt’s strong economic activity, growing population, and rising demand for protein all make this the next hot trade space for Illinois soybean farmers. This issue explores the many ways ISA is creating new relationships within this burgeoning marketplace.”

Article topics in the June issue include an in-depth look at USECC’s Soy Excellence Center, Egypt’s poultry exports as economic support, notes from ISA’s spring planting lunch deliveries, and company profiles on SoyVen and Alex Seeds.
