Max Armstrong shares the good news of the investment story from the soybean checkoff. A wide range of new uses have been developed for the crop from printing ink to carpeting to car interiors and now car tires. Farmers have made that possible through their investments.

About a bushel of soybeans is used to make a set of tires.
