The United Soybean Board (USB), in cooperation with Field to Market: The Keystone Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, recently launched the FieldPrint Calculator on its Web site at www.unitedsoybean.org. The calculator is a free tool that farmers can use to evaluate how various practices on their farm might impact the environment.

USB believes the U.S. soybean industry possesses many sustainability attributes and created the soybean checkoff's Sustainability Initiative to further improve the industry's overall environmental footprint.

Now, using the FieldPrint Calculator, individual soybean farmers can tabulate the impact their operations have on the environment and compare the results with state and national averages.
