BLOOMINGTON, ILL –- A safe and reliable infrastructure helps Illinois soybean farmers move soybeans efficiently and remain competitive in the global market. Today’s announcement of the Trump administration’s Legislative Outline for Rebuilding Infrastructure in America is a reminder that the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) is committed to focusing on rural infrastructure improvements throughout the state.

“We continue to be actively involved in discussions regarding infrastructure challenges in our state’s rural communities, and help to find solutions for them,” says Lynn Rohrscheib, soybean farmer from Fairmount, Ill., and ISA chairwoman. “As a focus on infrastructure improvements begin to take place nationwide, we’re eager to see the positive impact this will have on Illinois soybean farmers.”

The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff and membership programs represent more than 43,000 soybean farmers in Illinois. 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.
