Pennsylvania Soybean Board

By - Friday, October 9, 2015

The Pennsylvania Soybean Board (PSB) consists of a farmer-driven board responsible for managing Pennsylvania’s share of funds received from the national soy checkoff program. The soy checkoff helps ensure a strong and profitable future for soybean farmers. Through the checkoff, each farmer contributes one-half of 1 percent of the price of each bushel, which elevators and processors collect at the first point of sale. The checkoff uses the funds for activities to improve the profit potential for all U.S. soybean farmers. PSB primarily focuses on soybean research, marketing and education to support the profitability of Pennsylvania soybean farmers and the soy industry.
