For more than 85 years, the American Soybean Association and state affiliates (Arkansas - 1964) has met the demands of a growing world. The American soybean farmer has a tremendous opportunity to answer the call of agricultural needs throughout the world and ASA is the collective voice of 22,000 U.S. soybean producers. A primary focus of the American Soybean Association is policy development and implementation. Policy development starts with the farmer/members and culminates at an annual meeting of voting delegates. 
ASA is tasked with accomplishing the policy goals established by the farmers/members/delegates. ASA does this by testifying before Congress, lobbying Congress and the Administration, contacting members, and meeting with the media. This legislative process cannot happen without member input and support..  

We work in Washington D.C. and Little Rock on behalf of the 
soybean producers in Arkansas.
