Currently, 95% of U.S. soybean producers partner with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to create and implement farm-specific conservation programs in accordance with the SSAP. These conservation practices are the foundation of the SSAP. The SSAP is a certified, aggregate approach audited by third parties that verifies sustainable soybean production at a national scale. The U.S. approach is quantifiable and results driven with mass balance international verification available.
