Farmers Use Sustainable Farming Methods to Meet Global Food Demand
Date:5/24/2010

New United Soybean Board websites features information on sustainable farming for consumers

(PRWEB) May 24, 2010 -- American farmers like never before use sustainable farming methods to meet a growing global food demand, and a new online resource from the farmers who lead the United Soybean Board offers Web surfers a look at how they do it.

The new website, which can be found here, will feature news and information aimed at consumers on the topics important to farmers and non-farmers alike: sustainability in farming, maintaining and expanding global food supply, animal agriculture and biotechnology.

“We hope consumers will use this site as a resource for clear, straightforward information on how American farmers produce the most abundant and affordable food on earth,” says Vanessa Kummer, a farmer from Colfax, N.D. “With critical issues out there like sustainable agriculture and food security, and keeping up with expanding global food needs, U.S. farmers are at the center of some of the most pressing challenges facing society today.”

U.S. farmers also have an important voice in the responsible stewardship of animal agriculture, and the role that biotech crops will play in our future, two additional topics of focus of the new site.

About the United Soybean Board
The United Soybean Board (USB) represents a group of volunteer farmer-leaders administering a U.S. soy research and promotion program known most commonly as the “soybean checkoff.” Through the soybean checkoff, U.S. soybean farmers invest a portion of their sales in research and promotion to provide food, feed, fuel and fiber to the world. By building demand for such things as soy biodiesel, soybean meal, soybean oil, soy exports and more, USB and the soybean checkoff help provide profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers.
