A new website by The United Soybean Board (USB) highlights the
important role biotechnology plays in allowing U.S. farmers to continue
to meet the world’s food demand as well as ensuring our environment and
food supply remains as safe as ever. Whether you know it as biotech,
genetically modified or GM—the technology that allows farmers to grow
more per acre with fewer inputs plays a critical role in feeding our
Biotechnology allows researchers to select the desired characteristics in a variety
of seeds and crops, resulting in improved nutrition, increased pest and disease
resistance and greater crop yields. This technology enables farmers to generate a
sustainable supply of food, feed and fuel for customers here at home and abroad.

About the United Soybean Board
The United Soybean Board (USB) represents a group of volunteer farmer-leaders
administering a U.S. soy research and promotion program known most commonly as the
“soybean checkoff.” Through the soybean checkoff, U.S. soybean farmers invest a
portion of their sales in research and promotion to provide food, feed, fuel and
fiber to the world. By building demand for such things as soy biodiesel, soybean
meal, soybean oil, soy exports and more, USB and the soybean checkoff help provide
profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers.
