GETTING THE MOST FROM INDIANA SOYBEANS
Where do soybeans go after they've been harvested? Indiana soybean farmers have options — such as on-farm storage, county elevator, container yard, barge terminal, biofuel processing plants, shuttle elevator … the list goes on. This makes the need for reliable rural infrastructure and methods of transportation central to the success of soybean farmers in our state.
Indiana is considered America’s crossroads. That means our state experiences an enormous amount of cross-continental agriculture-related transportation, and so a solid infrastructure is critical to the economic vitality of our state.
With our highways, railroads and waterways, Indiana is positioned to be a leader in delivering soybeans and soy products to customers within state borders, throughout the country and across the world.
What's the benefit? Ensuring those markets — both domestic and international — remain viable is the focus of the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) Grain Marketing initiative.
From working to identify value-added opportunities and resources for Indiana soybean farmers to funding research that addresses the importance of transportation infrastructure to agriculture, ISA is committed to keeping Indiana’s soybean industry viable.
