Bringing Agribusiness and Soybean Farmers Together with ISA’s Corporate Partners Program

BLOOMINGTON, ILL – February 5, 2021 – As part of a new strategic plan, Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) is turning its marketing and storytelling focus back to its roots, celebrating the Illinois soybean farmer and supporting every aspect of soybean production. ISA is widening that strategic effort to establish partnerships with agriculture companies who are motivated by the same thing: bringing products and services to soybean growers across the state to improve their profitability and sustainability.

To achieve this, ISA has launched a new and improved Corporate Partners program which includes robust advertising and sponsorship offerings for agribusinesses who are looking to reach the state’s 43,000 soybeans farmers. These offerings include placements in ISA’s Illinois Field & Bean magazine, custom webinars, e-blasts and direct mailings, social media, digital advertising, and much more.

“As we were designing this program, we wanted these opportunities to be creative, flexible, and meaningful to our corporate partners,” says ISA Director of Communications, Rachel Peabody. “They’re adding value to our programs and projects, and we want to know we’re lending value to their missions as well. It’s a true ‘win’ when everyone moves ahead together.”

The FY21 Corporate Partner roster to date includes:
AgVantage Software, Inc.

Asgrow

Bayer
Brandt Industries
