The American Soybean Association and U.S. soybean farmers are committed to efforts that support sustainability, which includes environmental, economic, and social pillars, along with conservation. ASA farmer-leaders appreciate the opportunity to be engaged in legislative, regulatory, and importantly, on-farm efforts now that will preserve the future of farming and our world at large later.

ASA supports developing a definition of sustainable agriculture that encompasses profitable, intensive production and encourages consumer acceptance of biotechnology-enhanced products and satisfies food, feed, fiber, and biofuel needs.
ASA supports biotechnology, commercial fertilizer, and commercial crop protection products and believes that any definition of “sustainable agriculture” includes the use of these products.
