Soy checkoff-funded production research leads to technology advancements that can benefit U.S. soybean farmers in their operations. Often, private companies’ springboard off the checkoff’s projects to create new, innovative products. Read more below about the soy-checkoff efforts that are enabling farmers to grow bigger and better crops year after year and capture some tips that can help farmers directly.
In addition, the soy checkoff has collaborated with Qualified State Soybean Boards to maximize the results of checkoff-funded research projects in the most effective way possible: bringing the findings to farmers. The Soybean Research & Information Network (SRIN) website —soybeanresearchinfo.com— was launched through a joint effort by the North Central Soybean Research Program and United Soybean Board to give farmers a virtual resource full of information and toolkits for more efficient soybean production.
SRIN is a one-stop-shop for all the information the checkoff has discovered through farmer investments regarding key problem areas in production, such as tolerance and resilience. Each article on the SRIN website provides insight and explanation on the research findings as well as direct links to the study in the overall database for further exploration.
