Top Research Funding Areas
  • Breeding and Genetic Mapping for Flood, Insect, Chemical and Disease Tolerances
  • Development of Products and Cultural Practices Benefiting Soybean Farmers
Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of Mid-South Soybean Board's Soybean Production
  • Working to combat yield robbing issues with the main emphasis of returning maximum profit back to the farmer.
  • Helping to build soybean defensive traits and maximize profitability.
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • Screening and Selecting Non-Xtend Soybeans for Dicamba Tolerance
  • Enhanced Pest Control Systems for Mid-South Soybean Production
  • Evaluation of a Novel Drought-Tolerance Inoculant on Soybean Yield
  • Introduction of Feed Grains into the Mid-South Soybean Production Systems
  • Mid-South Soybean Yield Gap Survey

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

Mid-South Soybean Board researchers have uncovered Non-Xtend soybean genetics that tolerate Dicamba drift. Other defensive traits studied for improvement include flooding, insect, and drought tolerance. Dr. Pengyin Chen at the University of Missouri is the research lead for our Dicamba drift and spring flooding projects. Dr. Woo Suk Chang, University of Texas, has developed new inoculant strains that improve soybean yield under droughty growing conditions.
