Each year, the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council invests checkoff resources into unbiased agronomic research that shines a light on pest and weed management, soil health, and breeding and genetics.
As with any checkoff-funded endeavor, the goal – improving farmer profitability – is the primary focus.
Following a months-long review process, this spring the Council approved 16 production research and technology transfer projects from many of our region’s most prominent ag researchers for Fiscal Year 2021. Projects officially started May 1. As part of our ongoing “Checkoff Chatter” series – featuring myself, staff directors and farmer-leaders – we will include videos and written updates on these projects throughout the year. Additionally, we’ll also give updates on recent checkoff projects.
If you are interested in specific projects, feel free to contact the researchers at the email addresses, below or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, stay up-to-date on the latest agronomy news by following me on Twitter @DavidKeeMN, and view the latest checkoff news at mnsoybean.org/msrpc/.
