The American Soybean Association Wednesday unveiled the newly redesigned www.soystats.com, the online home for ASA's annual publication of statistical data on the soybean industry in the U.S.
The publication, released earlier this year, celebrates its 20th anniversary.
"We found that visitors to the site and users of the SoyStats guide were simply looking for information in the easiest and most direct manner possible," said Patrick Delaney, ASA's communications director, in a statement. "The new format gives quick, easily digestible information on all aspects of soybean production, consumption and export for farmers, consumers, industry and media."
Designed by Hastings, Neb.-based David & Associates, the site provides easily accessible information on planting data, yield and production, market value, uses, exports and global competitors, ASA said.
Major funding for the 2013 SoyStats and the new www.soystats.com is provided by the United Soybean Board.
Additional financial support for the project comes from the Illinois Soybean Association, Indiana Soybean Alliance, Iowa Soybean Association, North Dakota Soybean Council, South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, U.S. Soybean Export Council, Kentucky Soybean Board, Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, Mississippi Soybean Promotion Board, Ohio Soybean Council, Delaware Soybean Board, Kansas Soybean Commission, Maryland Soybean Board, New York Soybean Board, North Carolina Soybean Producers Association, Oklahoma Soybean Board, South Carolina Soybean Board, Tennessee Soybean Promotion Council, Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council and Virginia Soybean Board.
