Top Things for Farmers to Know About Checkoff Dollars Invested in Research

The ISA checkoff program wants to ensure farmers have the support and data they need to make management decisions before issues arise. Early detection of pathogens, tracking pesticide resistance and increasing management options is essential to help farmers reduce soybean production risk. We also support research that trains the next generation of agricultural professionals to support the soybean industry and farm resilience, profitability and sustainability.

Top Research Funding Areas
  • Reliable herbicide technologies for weed control
  • Nutrient loss management and sequestration in all soil types
  • Profitable Farm Technology Advancements
  • Plant Pathology – Investigating Red Crown Rot, a New Pathogen in Illinois
  • Soybean Variety Trial Protein and Oil Testing
  • Insect Pest Management and Insecticide Efficacy Over Time
  • Support for the North Central Soybean Research Program
  • Studies to Assess High Quality Soybean Meal as Feed for Swine and Poultry
Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of Illinois's Soybean Production
  • Variety Selection and Development
  • Herbicide-Resistant Weeds
  • Technological Controls
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • Research to support double cropping in Illinois, which showed that adding wheat into the rotation could reduce numbers of Soybean Cyst Nematode when populations are high.
  • Collaboration with swine and poultry nutritionists to assess feeding high quality soybean meal to ensure soybeans meet the needs of end users.

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

ISA checkoff-funded projects made way for soybean/wheat double-crop acreage expansion in Illinois counties covered by federal crop insurance. The expansion provides farmers with more options to increase soil health, water quality and grain sales while reducing runoff and erosion.
