Soybean Production

Almost half of the United States is devoted to farming and soybean production covers a lot of ground. Soybeans are sustainably produced and the second largest crop grown on U.S. soil.

Sustainable Soybean Production

Unlike many other oilseed crops, U.S. soybean production is wide-spanning and diverse. Eighty million acres of soybeans grown across the U.S. means soybeans are always readily available to meet the food industry and consumers’ ingredient needs, despite inclement weather.

Soybean farms sit among the 97% of family owned farms in the U.S. Soybean farmers use innovative practices, including regenerative farming, to grow sustainable beans on more than 300,000 farms across 45 states. U.S. soybean farms are thriving and will continue to keep up with demand for soybean ingredients, including soybean oilhigh oleic soybean oilsoybean shortenings and soy protein.
