The Center for Soy Innovation
The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council’s efforts to drive research and education for all things soy are on full display within the Center for Soy Innovation. Located just off Highway 50 in Jefferson City, the Center is a hub for all the ways Missouri’s number one crop impacts lives. From fuel, to construction materials, to sustainability and local foods, soy is the source.
The Center for Soy Innovation brings together many organizations working with and on behalf of Missouri’s soybean growers in one location, including the Missouri Soybean Association and Merchandising Council, the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri and Foundation for Soy Innovation, as well as the administrative functions for farmer-owned biodiesel plants, Missouri Farmers Care and the Ag Education on the Move program.
The facility showcases soy-based building materials and demonstrates new uses for soybean, from soy-based counter tops, flooring and insulation to turf, asphalt sealant and a biodiesel-fueled heating system. The Center further serves as a hub for business development and incubation, as well as value-added agriculture.
