Soybean Value Calculator
The Soybean Value Calculator is an innovative tool that enables soybean crushers to calculate and compare the economic value of crushing soybeans from different origins. Customers should enter data specific to their facility or experience, along with composition and physical factor data of whole soybeans, to analyze the estimated total benefit of U.S. Soy relative to other origins.
Soy Oil Value Calculator
The Soy Oil Value Calculator is a global tech tool that enables crushers and refiners to make better decisions in their soybean and soybean oil purchases based on the refining differences of the origin of the oil. The tool looks at the rate of refining, and the variable cost of refining for soybean oil from the U.S., Brazil and Argentina, and is based on almost 500 samples of crude degummed soybean oil collected in real-world conditions. The tool can show — in real-time — the economic advantages of choosing a particular soy oil.
The calculator analyzes soybean oil refining yield, revenue potential of refined soybean oil, cost of crude degummed soybean oil, and refining costs (neutralizing, bleaching, utilities).

U.S. Soy Sustainability Assurance Protocol (SSAP)
Get a U.S. Soy Sustainability Assurance Protocol (SSAP) transferable certificate to address your customer requests for documented and verified sustainable soy. The SSAP verifies that soybeans and soy products produced in the United States are compliant with a system of sustainability and conservation laws and regulations and farmer participation in the U.S. Farm Program. SSAP is one of the largest sustainability verification programs in the agriculture industry and has proven to be a highly reliable measure of U.S. Soy farmers’ commitment in areas like biodiversity, sustainable production practices, public and labor health, and continuous improvement of farming practices.
U.S. Soy Crop Quality Report 2023
How did U.S. Soy quality measure up in 2023? Despite weather conditions, U.S. Soy farmers delivered a high quality, and sustainably produced crop. Explore the U.S. Soy Crop Quality Report 2023 including a look at amino acid profiles and soluble sugars.
- A severe and chronic drought affected soybean production across most of the major U.S. soybean producing States in 2023.
- Despite exceedingly challenging production environments, U.S. Soy farmers are estimated to produce a crop averaging 3.3 MT per ha. (~50 bushels per acre).
- Average composition of the crop is very similar to 2022.
- One could consider this an ‘Oil Year.’
- Weather conditions resulted in beans being drier than usual, leading to increased protein and oil yields per ton.
