The future of Indiana’s soybeans begins today
Indiana soybean farmers are leaders in identifying and commercializing innovative new uses of soybeans.
Soybeans provide a “greener” alternative for many of the products you use every day, and when companies develop new products made from soybeans, they create another market for millions of bushels of soybeans each year.
What’s the benefit? The Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) works with product development companies, entrepreneurs and universities to identify, develop and commercialize new soybean uses that have significant market demand impact for Indiana soybean farmers.
ISA is also working hard to promote the many advantages of soy-based products, such as soy crayons, concrete durability enhancer and soy wax, all of which originated from Indiana soybean checkoff efforts.
Several soybean new uses have come from Purdue students thanks to the ISA-sponsored Student Soybean Innovation Competition that is held each year. It’s held as a way to introduce students to soybeans and their potential, as well as a way to find creative, innovative new uses for soy.
