Top Research Funding Areas
  • Soybean breeding and genetics for improved disease resistance, variety development, and environmental tolerances
  • High oleic, low linolenic soybean oil variety development
  • Assessing management options to enhance seed protein

 

Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of Missouri's Soybean Production
  • Increasing demand for SOYLEIC® Soybeans
  • Creating new uses that can build demand
  • Reducing risk from weather extremes and troublesome soybean pests
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • Cover crop trials for education and increased adoption
  • Improving soybean water use efficiency and flood tolerance
  • Optimization of food processing for SOYLEIC® products

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

Soybeans with the high oleic trait were developed by Missouri scientists in the early 2000’s, led by breeding specialist Grover Shannon. The trait has since been patented and trademarked as SOYLEIC® and is now marketed across the nation and beyond. The high oleic trait has a low trans-fat content, which is beneficial for humans and livestock.
