Literature Review on U.S. Soybean Production Systems

The Council for Agricultural Science and Technology has released a comprehensive literature review that evaluates U.S. soybean production systems currently in use with respect to their environmental and economic sustainability. It documents the ecological and economic implications of U.S. soybean production in conventional, transgenic (biotech), and organic production systems. Sustainability of U.S. Soybean Production: Conventional, Transgenic, and Organic Systems defines sustainable agriculture and evaluates its implications in the production of U.S. soybeans.
