Northern Soy Marketing

Foreign Material

Besides being outstanding in quality, soybeans from the northern U.S. states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Wisconsin are consistently among the cleanest in the world. These soybeans, which are exported to markets worldwide have limited foreign material (FM), thanks to strict management practices throughout the process of planting, growing, harvesting and storage.

According to the 2022 U.S. Soy Quality Report, the percentage of foreign material in soybeans sampled at the farm level are very low throughout the United States.
