Farm Progress: Soybean Oil in Commercial Tires

A farmer holds a beaker of soy oil in front of a soybean field.

Farm Progress featured Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company’s expanded commitment to develop sustainable tires with soy — the latest result of its partnership with the soy checkoff. USB Chair Ralph Lott spoke on the partnership and what it means for soybean farmers.

Lott said Goodyear’s roll out of their first soy-biobased tires for waste haul and city buses is a breakthrough for U.S. soybean farmers and the cities that depend on high-performing and sustainable tires.
