October 4, 2022 – BLOOMINGTON, IL – The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) and Soybean Research & Information Network (SRIN) are teaming up again this harvest season to help farmers enhance and protect soybean yield through access to the latest checkoff supported research.
ISA is proud to partner with SRIN to thank Illinois farmers for their efforts to help feed the world. This fall, growers are encouraged to watch for ISA’s thank you – a lunchbox filled with snacks, a drink, and all the information they need on the latest in soybean research from around the country. ISA’s simple message to farmer recipients? We’ll feed you the information that helps you feed the world.
Together with SRIN, ISA will be delivering 5,000 lunchboxes to 111 Illinois grain elevators. The lunchboxes will reach farmers in 106 cities, covering 47 counties across the state including Boone, Cass, Christian, Coles, DeKalb, Ford, Kane, Kendall, Macon, McHenry, McLean, Piatt, Sangamon, St. Clair, Warren, Winnebago, and more.
“We are so excited to partner with SRIN to provide harvest snacks and information about the great checkoff funded soybean research happening in Illinois and around the country,” says ISA Agronomy Programs Manager, Megan Miller. “Be sure to keep the soybean defoliator guides in your truck for soybean scouting next spring.”
The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff and membership programs represent more than 43,000 soybean farmers in Illinois. The checkoff funds market development and utilization efforts while the membership program supports the government relations interests of Illinois soybean farmers at the local, state, and national level, through the Illinois Soybean Growers (ISG). ISA upholds the interests of Illinois soybean producers through promotion, advocacy, and education with the vision of becoming a market leader in sustainable soybean production and profitability.
