The American Soybean Association got its start 100 years ago just outside of Camden, Indiana, in Carroll County on September 3, 2020.  Soybean production went from 112, 926 acres in 1919 to 76.1 million acres in 2019, making soybeans the second-largest US crop.

Like most farmers in Carroll County, our farm includes soybeans in rotation each year.  Carroll County ranks 23rd in the State for total number of soybean acres (2017 data), and Indiana ranks 5th in the nation for soybean production.

The first ASA president was Taylor Fouts.  Descendants of the original Fouts family live in the area and continue to farm.

Then – brothers Taylor, Noah, and Finis Fouts
