MSR&PC releases FY25 request for proposals 

The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR&PC) is now accepting project proposals for fiscal year 2025. To submit a proposal for checkoff funding consideration, email the cover sheet, full project proposal and budget template to projects@mnsoybean.com by 5 p.m. on June 30, 2024. 

The Council is seeking projects in the following core areas: 

  • Increasing and diversifying market access;  
  • Promotion outreach; 
  • Creating new uses and developing products for soybeans; 
  • Leadership development; 
  • and influencer education.  

Successful research proposals will increase profitability to Minnesota soybean farmers, while promoting, educating and increasing awareness of Minnesota’s nearly 26,000 soybean farmers and the importance of soybeans and soybean products to industry, influencers and consumers.  

“Our checkoff-supported researchers play a key role in supporting the priorities of the Council, and we look forward to partnering with them on their latest ideas that will benefit our soybean industry,” said MSR&PC Chair Tom Frisch. “We encourage industry professionals to participate in the RFP process across our priority areas and are excited to see their proposals.” 

The research proposals will be discussed and acted upon within Council committees and then brought forward for recommendation to the full MSR&PC board during its August 2024 board meeting.
