Top Research Funding Areas
  • RNA strains and weed extracts for controlling soybean fungus and insects
  • New food-grade edible soybean films
  • Development of food grade products and systems for the domestic food market
  • Building defensive traits and maximizing profitability
Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of Mid-South Soybean Board's Soybean Production
  • New, innovative methods to combat soybean insects and disease
  • Reducing producer risks and input costs
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • Functional ultra-high stearic acid soybean germplasm
  • High-yielding dicamba and flood tolerant soybeans
  • New inoculant strains that improve soybean yield under droughty growing conditions

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.
