Sustainability efforts discussed in latest 'Focus on Soybean' talk
In the latest “Focus on Soybean” presentation, titled “The NSSI: How Soy Sustainability Can Help You Meet Your Customers’ Demands and Expand Your Markets,” Shawn Conley, associate professor of agronomy and soybean Extension specialist at the University of Wisconsin, helps U.S. growers, ag professionals, consumers, and multi-national companies and NGOs understand this important initiative.
Specifically in this presentation, participants will be introduced to the National Sustainable Soybean Initiative mission and efforts, which will operate at the farm level, incorporate a framework of tools and technical information from a base of expertise and programs, and, with the support of regional and national experts, communicate sustainable soybean management systems.
This 15-minute presentation is open access through Oct. 31. Viewers can also opt to see a 5-minute executive summary version of this presentation. This shorter executive summary version is permanently open access courtesy of the United Soybean Board.
