BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) recently launched a new website dedicated to bringing innovation, technology and science to Illinois farmer audiences. SoyInnovator is an online resource designed to provide growers, and the industry that supports them, with data-driven news and reviews in a way that inspires continual improvement on the farm through the adoption of new practices and technology.
Because science and technology are continually evolving and for soybean farmers to remain competitive, the path forward depends on how they prepare. The research discoveries happening today will transform into a new way of doing business in the future. SoyInnovator focuses on what growers need to know, joining ISA’s suite of farmer-facing media properties including Illinois Field & Bean magazine and ILSoyAdvisor platform which offers actionable, year-long agronomic advice.
“Today’s farmers are more tech savvy and motivated by emerging innovations that benefit the industry, the environment, and their bottom line,” says ISA Chairman and Illinois soybean farmer, Steve Pitstick. “SoyInnovator will enable farmers of the future to become more efficient and better informed, to improve tomorrow’s yields, and to be ready for what’s next in Illinois agriculture.”
