Iowa farmers recently learned that for the first time, high-oleic soybeans will be available to them for the 2016 growing season. High-oleic soybeans are produced with the same agronomic trait and disease packages that farmers expect in others varieties.
The oil produced from high oleic soybeans is stable and
provides a solution to expand existing markets and provide new customers
to U.S. soybean farmers.
The soy check-off,
along with the rest of the soybean industry, is committed to the
expansion of high-oleic soybeans and their ability to raise demand for
farmers a premium to grow high-oleic soybeans, providing an even higher
profit opportunity during times of lower commodity prices.
In Iowa, high-oleic soybeans will be accepted by AGP in Manning, and contracts will be available for the 2016 growing season.
