Your Soybean Checkoff Dollars at Work

The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) and the National Soybean Research Laboratory (NSRL) strive to facilitate research spanning the soybean industry. Rapid developments in soybean science and technology are changing the way we do research in the areas of soybean productivity and genetic improvement, crop management, animal feed utilization, nutrition and human health, and processing and utilization. These rapid developments in science and technology have significant impact on all segments of the soybean industry. The ISA and the NSRL are focused on the idea that research should directly respond to the needs and issues of the soybean marketplace. The ISA is the statewide organization for Illinois soybean farmers. The farmers on its board administer soybean Checkoff funds to support research, promotions and educational programs designed to increase demand for Illinois soybeans and administer legislation and membership programs.
