Building the Industry, Together
Soybeans are one of the most in-demand crops on the market today — and one of Indiana’s top exports. However, for soybean farmers to succeed in today’s environment, increasing and maintaining demand is crucial. Your checkoff dollars do just that.
Contributions go directly toward funding, marketing, research and commercialization programs, which help secure a strong future for Indiana soybean farmers. Learn more about those programs here.
The Soybean Promotion, Research, and Consumer Information Act established the national soybean checkoff program in 1990. The U.S. Department of Agriculture established the United Soybean Board, a farmer-led organization, to administer the program on a national level. Many soybean growing states also have a Qualified State Soybean Board (QSSB) charged with collecting and administering the checkoff on a state level. In Indiana, the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA) serves as the state’s QSSB.
