Five Ways Delaware Farmers are Excelling at Sustainability

When Delaware’s soybean farmers began planting this spring, they did so with the environment in mind.

Based on statistics from the United Soybean Board’s “Soy Sustainability” report released in early 2017, Delaware soybean farmers produced 5.5 million bushels on 175,000 acres, averaging 32 bushels per acre in 2010. By 2015, through the responsible use of technology and implementing efficiencies in how they farm, they were able to produce 6.9 million bushels on 173,000 acres, averaging 40 bushels per acre.

Research

The Delaware Soybean Board funds soybean research on an annual basis to support the viability and profitability of soybean farmers in Delaware.

Soy Products

Hundreds of different soy-biobased products are being offered today by American companies.

It’s about more than bragging rights. It’s about discovering varieties and management choices that work for soybean growers in Delaware.
