Soybean producers rely on export market

By Jennifer Bremer

More than half of the U.S. soybean crop is exported to other countries, but in order for soy to continue to be the No. 1 U.S. agriculture export, the transportation infrastructure must have continued improvements.

The Soy Transportation Coalition was organized by Midwest state soybean boards to focus on the growing realization among farmers that a quality transportation system is needed to get their products to the consumers.

Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Coalition, said their effort is to improve the rural roads, highways, railways and ports and to let legislators know that transportation is important for agriculture.

"We know in agriculture we will continue to have new uses, markets and innovation, but we also need to know that we will have a good transportation infrastructure," he said. "Farmers need to speak up for their needs."
