SD Soybean Research and Promotion Council has seats open on their "See For Yourself" Pacific Northwest Tour.

The South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council fourth annual See for Yourself Pacific Northwest Tour will take place June 22-25.

This year's tour will follow the U.S. soybean processing and export trail all the way to the TEMCO terminal located on the Port of Tacoma. TEMCO, a 50-50 joint venture between CHS and Cargill, boasts the only 1,000-ton cantilever roof in the world. At nearly one acre in size, the roof covers ships so feed grains can be loaded and kept dry during the rainy season.

Tour participants will also visit an aquaculture facility at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration site, as well as Gray's Harbor, including Imperium Renewables and the AGP export facility. Imperium Renewables, Inc. is a national leader in next-generation biofuel production.

South Dakota soybean farmers are encouraged to apply by April 30. The South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council will cover airfare, lodging and most other expenses. However, spaces are reserved for only 15 South Dakota soybean farmers.
