This presentation will help U.S. growers, ag professionals, and consumers, as well as multi-national companies and NGO’s understand the National Sustainable Soybean Initiative (NSSI). Specifically in this presentation, participants will be introduced to NSSI’s mission which is to develop a roadmap of soybean management systems that will help producers to achieve verifiable sustainability outcomes, improve the environmental services and productivity of their farms, help their rural communities thrive, and satisfy performance expectations of the value chain. These efforts will operate at the farm level, incorporate a framework of tools and technical information from a wide base of expertise and programs, and, with the support of regional and national experts, communicate sustainable soybean management systems.
