Soybean growers are paving the way at the 2022 Farm Progress Show in Boone, IA with the completion of a soy-based asphalt project.

The 42,560 square foot asphalt base uses 100% recycled asphalt mixed with a soy-based polymer. In total, the construction uses over 2,300 lbs. of soybean oil, or 215 bushels of soybeans.
