Key Issues

Advocate for fair public policies that impact your farm.

  • International Trade

    ISG monitors a number of issues that can affect Illinois soybean farmer market access around the world, including free trade agreements, trade-distorting policies and opportunities with China.

  • Farm Bill

    Congress approved the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, including a few changes that impact Illinois soybean producers.

  • Federal Biodiesel Tax Exemption

    Reinstating the biodiesel tax credit must remain a priority for Congress, which expands renewable fuel production, creates jobs and supports Illinois agriculture.

  • Illinois Biodiesel Sales and Use Tax Credit

    The Illinois Biodiesel Sales and Use Tax Credit, which is expected to remain intact until December 31, 2018, is a tool that helps the biodiesel industry create strong economic activity in Illinois.

  • Renewable Fuel Standard

    The EPA finalized biomass-based diesel volume requirements at 2.1 billion gallons for 2018 and 2019, a modest increase that's lower than recommendations.

  • Transportation Infrastructure Maintenance & Improvement

    A crumbling transportation infrastructure system can cost soybean farmers an additional $1 per bushel. Join ISG in supporting investments for transportation infrastructure.

  • Biotech Approvals

    Biotech approvals are key to ensuring farmers have access to technologies that help them successfully grow a high quality crop.

  • Expanding Cuban Trade

    ISG sees great potential in the island nation of Cuba. It is estimated that at least 20 percent of Cuba's U.S. corn and soy imports originate from Illinois.

  • GMO Labeling

    Growing safe food is our top priority. State-by-state GMO labeling laws will cause confusion and raise food costs for Illinois families.

  • Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy (NLRS)

    Existing incentive-based program implements best management practices to help reduce nutrient losses.

  • Sustainable Soybean Production

    Ensure your farm stays economically healthy. The definition of sustainability in Illinois must meet today’s needs and keep our farm businesses viable for the future.

  • Waters of the United States (WOTUS)

    WOTUS creates an enormous amount of uncertainty and risk for Illinois soybean farmers who could be subjected to federal permitting requirements before making any changes to their land.
