ISA Experience Class

The ISA Experience Class has a new look this year. The class will meet for three days and will have the opportunity to travel across the state of Iowa to tour and have conversations about the soybean industry. Participants will develop insights on soybean research, new uses, transportation, communications, policy and more! We want you to be involved with and benefit from this program!

The class is open to any Iowa soybean farmer. Participants must be 21 years of age or over. Costs of meals and lodging will be covered by ISA.
