Max Armstrong shares some key more recent milestones achieved by the soybean industry

Max Armstrong finishes this week celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the American Soybean Association with a discussion of a new market for this crop – biodiesel. In 2004, the first biodiesel tax incentive was passed into law. It was a landmark move for the industry, which provided a two-year incentive for blending biodiesel with petroleum-based diesel. And Max shares another milestone of the group.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
