Missouri Soybean Requesting Project Proposals Through November 1

Priority projects grow demand for soy and address challenges facing soybean producers.

(Jefferson City, MO) — The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council is now accepting proposals for work to improve the future for soy beginning in 2021. All project plans should address opportunities for research, education or growing demand for soy, and directly impact Missouri soybean growers.

Missouri’s soybean farmers have supported research and education work through their checkoff for more than thirty years. Previously funded work includes research into biodiesel, flood and drought-tolerance in soybeans and high oleic soybean oil, as well as herbicide-resistant soybean varieties.

Interested principal investigators should complete the online application. Funding decisions are expected during Spring 2021. To learn more about previously funded projects, review the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council’s Annual Research Report.

The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council is a statewide, farmer-led organization working to improve opportunities for Missouri soybean farmers though a combination of research, outreach, education and market development efforts through the soybean checkoff.
