The Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) has hired Ed Anderson as the organization's senior director of supply and production systems.

In this position, Anderson will integrate ISA's contracted research programs and supervise the teams involved with the On-Farm Network(r) and Environmental Programs and Services. He will collaborate with a number of entities including ISA staff, directors and members, land grant universities, United Soybean Board and North Central Soybean Research Program and strengthen relationships with a variety of soybean and agricultural industry groups.

"Ed is a proven leader when it comes to integrating technical, leadership and communication skills across a variety of teams and departments," said Karey Claghorn, ISA chief operating officer.

"For an organization like ours that produces, houses and distributes so much information, research and talent, we know that Ed's abilities in establishing and managing efficient processes will be vital. He'll be a catalyst in bringing all of these areas and skills together in ways that will benefit our farmers, support our supply development efforts and take ISA to the next level."

Anderson most recently worked for DuPont Pioneer in Johnston, serving as the senior strategy manager for the disease & outputs traits/enterprise trait strategy team. In addition, he has served as an assistant professor in plant pathology at the University of Arkansas and worked as a research assistant at the graduate and post-graduate levels at the universities of Florida and Missouri.

Anderson grew up on a farm in north central Iowa. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University and has a doctorate in molecular plant virology from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
