By - Monday, March 26, 2018

A delegation of U.S. Soy grower leaders recently traveled to Indonesia on behalf of U.S. Soy.

The 13th Southeast Asia Soy Food Symposium and the Agriculture Supply Chain Asia (ASCA) Conference took place March 18-22 in Surabuya, Indonesia.

The U.S. soybean farmers spoke to conference attendees, sharing the 2017/18 crop outlook; their sustainable farming practices; the importance of export markets to the U.S. Soy industry and the commitment of U.S. growers to these markets; and the latest technology in the U.S. farming industry and the impact of big data on productivity.

USSEC teams with the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) and the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) to present ASCA, which aims to provide participants with an in-depth outlook on current ag markets in the region, the influencing factors, along with strategic analyses and expert insights so as to better navigate the peaks and troughs of the global agricultural market.

USSEC also hosted its 13th Annual Southeast Asia Soy Food Symposium in Indonesia, bringing together all stakeholders in the soy food industry in that region.
