Every farmer wants increased revenue and specialty soybeans are providing just that for growers across the country. From non-GMO food grade to Roundup Ready®, organic or even high oleic, specialty soybeans are providing monetary premiums.

Trade facilitator for the Illinois Soybean Association, Eric Woodie talks about the tools available for farmers to learn more about soybean premiums.
