Louisiana Soybean & Grain Board

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

The Louisiana Soybean and Grain Research and Promotion Board stewards checkoff funds to provide farmers with scientific, applicable, data-driven research. Using resources at both the state and regional level creates research solutions specific to Louisiana’s yield- and profit-robbing problems. Current efforts emphasize efficient use of inputs for sustainably profitable returns for soybean producers. LSGRPB has focused efforts over the last year on obtaining feedback on gaps in research from farmers and certified crop consultants. The board has seen results in areas of pathology, new uses of soy, developments in soil health and entomology, and provided practical information to growers on variety selection, fertility recommendations, and other management techniques.

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

Louisiana continually faces insect and disease pressures from the time of planting through harvest. With Louisiana farmer checkoff funds, researchers are updating practical recommendations on red banded stink bug thresholds, sampling methods, and other applied research projects to get growers and consultants necessary information on how to combat this troublesome late season pest. Similarly, LSGRPB dollars are being used to further understand the new disease Taproot Decline to give soybean farmers better understanding of what this disease means for their fields and where we are headed in controlling this disease into the future.
