Glynn Guenther’s future in soybeans started years before he ever knew what a soybean looked like. His family began planting them in the 1930s, and for as long as he can remember he’s wanted to be a part of the family business. After graduating from Henderson State University with a Bachelor of Science in business, his role as a fourth-generation farmer and partner alongside his father started in 1974.
As a member of the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board, Glynn strives to develop new members and continue supporting soybean-refining research in order to increase yield and profitability for soybean producers. When sharing the story of soybeans, Glynn likes to point out the multitude of products derived from soybeans beyond seed products, food products for human consumption to building materials for the automotive and farm equipment industries.
