Tim Gottman of rural Monroe City talks to a group of Japanese business men and women about sustainability practices on the farm.

Six Missouri farms have joined the Soil Health Partnership, a move that could advance the adoption of agricultural practices similar to the Show-Me State. One of the farms to join is TJT Gottman Inc., of rural Monroe City.
On Wednesday September 13, the Gottman’s hosted a group from Japan at their farm located north of Monroe City in Warren. The US Soybean Export Council (USSEC) organized a trade mission made up of a team of Japanese business executives from large Japan based firms that are major users or buyers of USA soy.  Darrick Steen, Environmental Director for Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council, explained the purpose of the trade mission was to raise awareness about the sustainability of US farmers and US soybean production.
