BISMARCK, N.D. — The Archer-Daniels-Midland Company has plans to build a $350 million soybean crushing plant and refinery in North Dakota.

Gov. Doug Burgum joined ADM Monday in announcing plans for the state's first dedicated soybean plant.

ADM, which has its North American headquarters in Decatur, says the plant and refinery in Spiritwood would create 70 jobs and process up to 150,000 bushels of soybeans each day. It's expected to be completed by the 2023 harvest.

"This soybean processing plant is a gamechanger for North Dakota farmers, adding value and expanding the market for this important crop closer to home while also supporting the production of products such as renewable green diesel right here in North Dakota," Burgum said in a statement.

North Dakota ranked ninth in the nation in soybean production in 2020, producing over 190 million bushels of soybeans, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service.

Cass County was the nation's top soybean producing county as recently as 2018, and Stutsman, Richland and Barnes also have ranked in the top 20 soybean-producing counties in recent years.
