USSEC Rolls out Soy Food Bean Planted Acres Study
- General News
USSEC is conducting a survey that will be used to promote U.S. soy food beans overseas. This questionnaire will be sent to U.S. soy food bean contractors and the results will help to create a national acreage report of U.S. soy food beans.
Overseas food bean importers from both established and emerging soyfood markets are routinely asking for two things that U.S. soy exporters are currently not able to supply: first, quantitative proof of the size of the U.S. conventional/non-GMO food bean planted acres and, second, quantitative proof of the ability of U.S. growers to produce the type of soybeans that foreign importers want and need.
Because the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not collect information regarding planted acres of conventional, non-GMO soybeans, the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board has stepped up to fund the first-ever USSEC project to quantify the robustness of U.S. soy food bean production. The Soy Food Bean Planted Acres study will help prove that the U.S. is one of the world’s largest and most reliable producers and exporters of desirable soy food bean varieties.
U.S. soy food bean exporters are being asked to help build this historic, national report by completing this survey when they receive it. Questionnaire results will be aggregated to preserve contractors’ anonymity. USSEC’s Soy Food Bean Planted Acres Survey will be sent out within the next two weeks.
