United Soybean Board

Program manager with USB, contracted through Smithbucklin


United Soybean Board’s 77 volunteer farmer-leaders work on behalf of all U.S. soybean farmers to achieve maximum value for their soy checkoff investments. These volunteers create value by investing in research, education, and promotion with the vision to deliver sustainable soy solutions to every life, every day across the three priority areas of Infrastructure & Connectivity, Health & Nutrition, and Innovation & Technology. As stipulated in the federal Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service has oversight responsibilities for USB and the soy checkoff.

United Soybean Board and the Phytobiomes Alliance

“As soybean farmers, our involvement with the Phytobiomes Alliance is critical to ensure that our growers have access to predictive analytics to better understand the right mix of crops, management practices and inputs during the growing season. The focus of the Alliance aligns closely with USB’s goal to invest in technology that ensures sustainable solutions and environmental resilience of the U.S. soybean crop.”

Don Wyss, Indiana farmer and supply action team lead for United Soybean Board, an organization that represents the half-million U.S. soybean farmers.
