North Central Soybean Research Program

North Central Soybean Research Program


Soybean farmers in the Midwest face many of the same production challenges. Whether growers are dealing with aphids, root diseases or nutrient challenges, research can help them understand more about what they are facing and offer management solutions.


In order to maximize checkoff dollars while providing soybean farmers with timely and relevant information, the North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC) is part of a multi-state effort to share and coordinate research. The North Central Soybean Research is a collaboration of 13 state soybean associations that soybean checkoff funds to improve yields and profitability.


The North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP) is recognized as a leader in multi-state collaborative research and outreach efforts to support soybean farmers and drive the soybean industry forward.


The focus of NCSRP is soybean production research and extension outreach. The organization invest soybean checkoff funds in university research and extension programs to better understand and manage plant stressors that reduce soybean yield and farmer profitability. NCSRP’s emphasis on enhancing and protecting soybean yield through genetics and agronomic practices contributes to soybean farmer success today and tomorrow.
