Missouri Soybeans

Dedicated to Missouri soybean farmers

Missouri farmers are great at producing sustainable, quality soybeans. Missouri Soybeans is dedicated to making sure Missouri farmers have the tools they need and that there are customers for Missouri soybeans. With the power of two complementary organizations supporting them, farmers can be assured their soybeans are being marketed, researched and advocated for.

Missouri Soybeans is governed by the leadership of two farmer boards, Missouri Soybean Association, the policy and advocacy organization, and the Missouri Soybean Checkoff, the research- and marketing-focused Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council.

Missouri Soybeans works for Missouri farmers through two farmer-led organizations


Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council

The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council (MSMC) invests farmer checkoff dollars to improve profitability opportunities for Missouri soybean farmers. This farmer-driven organization focuses on marketing, research and commercialization.


Missouri Soybean Association

The Missouri Soybean Association (MSA) is a membership organization that advocates on behalf of Missouri soybean farmers at the local, state and national level. MSA’s farmer board champions Missouri farmers, being their voice to many audiences who impact farming and agriculture.
