Considerations for Spring-Applied Nutrients
There are many things to consider when deciding whether to add fertilizer. Many farmers add it in the fall, but it may be time to consider adding it in the spring when nutrients are needed most. Adding fertilizer in the spring can prevent nutrient loss and be more sustainable by reducing the risk of runoff. Learn more at our site including cost implications and what whether there is time to get it in. 
Checkoff Grows Demand For Soy Through New Uses
Demand for soy has grown over 700% in the last decade thanks to investments in research with support from the Checkoff that have created many new uses for soy. Soy-based ink is just one of the products developed with help from the American Soybean Association. Continue to our website to find out other new uses for soy including soy foam, soy bio-diesel, plastic resin, and the list continues!
