An agreement signed between the United Soybean Board (USB) and USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) formalizes a research partnership to better meet the needs of global soybean customers. Targeted traits include superior vegetable oil attributes for human health and food quality and improved digestibility in animal feed.

“This agreement ensures that (farmer) investment is put to the best possible use through efficient, targeted partnerships with top government scientists,” says USB Vice Chairman David Durham.
