A tool to keep you efficient and profitable

When selling soybeans, farmers must consider not only the price of soybeans, but also the transportation costs associated with getting their crop from the field to the elevator or first purchaser.

The Soy Transportation Coalition offers a simple tool for determining the economic impact of transporting soybeans to various locations. Use this tool to help determine your most efficient, profitable transportation option.

Impact Indiana: Nutrient Management and Soil Health Strategy

The Indiana Nutrient Management and Soil Health (NMSH) strategy was created to improve education and awareness of best management practices. Because farmers are in the best position to determine the practices that are most productive on their own farms to achieve reductions in nutrient loss, the NMSH strategy will increase on-farm awareness, which will lead to improved nutrient management, soil health and, ultimately, Indiana’s water quality.

This comprehensive strategy will stretch across multiple years with three main goals:

  • Increase awareness among farmers that nutrient loss from soil to water is an issue and can be managed at the farm level
  • Empower farmers to review and adopt new best management practices
  • Keep best management practices in the hands of farmers

Representing key organizations in the private and public sectors, this collaborative effort showcases the desire of farmers to address concerns in a way that make sense and positions Indiana as a leader in resource management.
