The United Soybean Board (USB) has responded to allegations made by the American Soybean Association (ASA) regarding mismanagement of farmer checkoff dollars, saying this is " categorically untrue."

In a statement, the USB said, "Today, U.S. soybean farmers enjoy record demand both here and abroad for their soybeans, through the fiscally responsible efforts of the farmers who serve voluntarily on USB.  If the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) deems it necessary, USB welcomes a USDA Office of Inspector General audit of any and all of its operations, contractor operations and projects. We would encourage all U.S. soybean farmers to learn more about how USB and the soybean checkoff program operate by visiting, the only official website of USB and the soybean checkoff program."
