Indiana Ag Connection - 06/07/2023

Indiana's soybean and corn farmers recently welcomed international delegations interested in U.S. soy products, in an effort to strengthen relationships and boost soybean exports. Organized by the Indiana Soybean Alliance (ISA), along with partners such as the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC), the United Soybean Board (USB), and the Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC), this initiative aimed to showcase Indiana's soybean production capabilities to buyers and consumers from across the globe.

Visiting representatives from countries including Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, China, Japan, Korea, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Spain embarked on a comprehensive tour of Indiana. The itinerary included visits to prominent farm businesses, agricultural research sites at Purdue University, and the farms of local soybean growers. The tour concluded with an unforgettable experience at the renowned Indianapolis 500 race, providing a taste of American culture.

Establishing strong relationships with foreign buyers is a key focus for ISA and its partners. By offering insights into crop cultivation practices, business operations, and cultural aspects of the soybean industry, Indiana's farmers aim to foster trust and familiarity. The delegations also participated in the Soybean Oil Masters program, an educational initiative jointly organized by ISA and USSEC, which enlightens participants about the production process and uses of U.S. soybean oil.

Indiana holds a prominent position in soybean production, with farmers planting over 5.6 million acres and producing more than 335 billion bushels of soybeans annually, valued at an estimated $4.4 billion. ISA's strategic approach, supported by USSEC and USB, focuses on enhancing the value of the crop by expanding export markets and promoting U.S. soy globally.

By hosting international buyers and showcasing the quality and reliability of Indiana's soybean industry, this initiative strengthens trade connections and lays the foundation for future collaborations. Indiana's soybean and corn farmers are dedicated to meeting global demand while highlighting the state's commitment to sustainable agricultural practices and innovative production methods.
