Chris Steele, a sixth-generation soybean farmer from Adams County, has been selected by the Indiana Soybean Alliance to represent Indiana in the 2018 American Soybean Association DuPont Young Leader program.

Steele will join other US farmers at DuPont Pioneer headquarters in Johnston, Iowa to develop leadership skills, and to learn more about the soybean industry issues and the role farmers play in telling the farm story. Another program highlight includes attending the 2018 Commodity Classic in Anaheim, California for marketing training, issues updates and recognition at ASA’s annual awards banquet. 

Steele farms soybeans, corn and pumpkins in Decatur, Indiana. He and his family recently diversified their farming operation by adding an agritourism component. The agritourism aspect of the farm has shown Steele the need to educate consumers about agriculture.
