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. U.S. soy farmers use sustainable agriculture to protect their land and to ensure the healthiest soybeans.
Sustainable Soybean Production
Unlike many other oilseed crops, U.S. soybean production is wide-spanning and diverse and places a large emphasis on sustainable production. 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, sustainable agriculture practices, including regenerative farming, to grow sustainable beans on more than 515,000 farms across 45 states. U.S. soybean farms are thriving and will continue to keep up with demand for soybean ingredients, including soybean oil, high oleic soybean oil, soybean shortenings and soy protein.
