Demand far exceeds supply for high oleic soybeans

United Soybean Board leaders say the demand is high for high oleic soybeans, but there are challenges in meeting the demand.

Board member Chuck Prellwitz from Wisconsin tells Brownfield the food industry wants high oleic soybean oil, and there are industrial uses that can pay more for that product. “There’s such a demand for it, that I guess that’s where I’m interested in pushing as much as we can to get those beans grown and get the oil on the market for the people that want it.”

But, Prellwitz says not enough farmers are growing the high oleic soybean varieties yet.
