Colts to use soy-backed turf in new partnership with Indiana Soybean Alliance

January 22, 2021 By Amie Simpson Filed Under: Indiana, News, Soybeans

Soy-based turf will be used by the Indianapolis Colts during 2021 pre-game events and traveling education exercise programs.

The Indiana Soybean Alliance, with support from the United Soybean Board and SYNLawn Indiana, is partnering with the NFL team to highlight the benefits of soybeans and the soy checkoffs impact on building new markets.

United Soybean Board Director Jim Carrol says people will be able to learn about soy while enjoying a 40-yard dash across SYNLawn.

Theyre going to teach kids about their product, football, fitness, and what soybeans can do, he says. This is a product made with soybean oil and its renewable and I think it has great potential in other areas like this.

The Arkansas farmer says this partnership is an example of the many uses of soybeans.

This is just one of thousands of uses were working with as the United Soybean Board, he says. Were trying right now to get it into asphaltits supposed to do well in both warm and cool conditions. Also, were using it in biodiesel, were using it in paints and its also in tires, tennis shoes, and much more.

USB has collaborated with SYNLawn, through soy checkoff investments, to introduce the benefits of U.S. soy in other areas as well.

SYNLawn has installed 82 million square feet of U.S. soybacked grass across 200,000 installation in the United States and 19 other countries since 2008. SYNLawn says it will add more soy than ever to its products this year and will increase its use of soy by 10 percent.

USB farmer directors invest and leverage checkoff funds in programs and partnerships to drive soybean innovation beyond the bushel and increase preference for U.S. soy.
