North Dakota soybean production has exploded in recent years to the point that the state is now the fourth largest in planted and harvested soybean acres in the country. Both acreage and productivity have steadily increased. Part of the reason for that growth is research that is helping farmers be more productive while stewarding natural resources and improving sustainability.
The North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC) is committed to supporting research designed to benefit all North Dakota soybean farmers. The NDSC invests 30-40 percent of the checkoff funds they receive into production research. That investment yields positive returns by helping farmers in the state better manage diseases, pests and improve their yields.
Getting this research into the hands farmers is a key component of the NDSC’s efforts. Learn more about the focus and the results from NDSC-supported soybean research by downloading the 2023 Research Update.
