The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) represents more than 45,000 soybean farmers in Illinois through the state soybean checkoff and membership efforts. The checkoff funds market development, soybean production and profitability research, promotion, issues management and analysis, communications and education. Membership and advocacy efforts support Illinois soybean farmer interests in local areas, Springfield and Washington, D.C. ISA programs are designed to ensure Illinois soy is the highest quality, most dependable, sustainable and competitive in the global marketplace. For more information, visit the website www.ilsoy.org.
In 2015, to improve Illinois soybean production and profitability, the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) partnered with the Illinois Certified Crop Adviser Program to launch the Soy CCA Envoys. The Soy CCA Envoys are a network of Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) in Illinois who will share management information and recommendations on ILSoyAdvisor.com. These CCAs work directly with producers and, through partnering with ISA, will share high-yield management strategies and technologies to help growers discover the true profit potential of soybeans.
The Soy CCA Envoys program is funded in part by the Illinois soybean checkoff and is included in ISA's efforts with CCAs to continually improve soybean production in Illinois. For more information on the Illinois Certified Crop Adviser Program, visit www.ilsoy.org.
In 2016, Stephanie Porter, Burrus Seed Sales Agronomist was asked to be an ILSoy CCA Envoy, along with 5 others across Illinois. To date, Stephanie has written 22 blogs on www.ilsoy.org website as well as a soybean disease webinar and podcast. To access this information, you can click here or below:
