Top Research Funding Areas
  • Soybean breeding and genetics for improved yield, immune systems, and seed protein
  • Enhancing soybean germplasm through biotechnology
  • Assessing management options to enhance seed protein
Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of Nebraska's Soybean Production
  • Optimize annual on-farm yield improvements from 0.5 to 1.0 bushels/acre a year
  • Stop the decline in seed protein that accompanies the rise in soybean yield
  • Continue the focus on genetic, chemical and organic control of insects, diseases and weeds
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • Using soybean oil as a sustainable recycling agent to enhance asphalt pavements
  • Effects of growth conditions on the anti-inflammatory bioactivity of the soybean sprout
  • Rapid diagnosis for fungicide-resistant frogeye leaf spot

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

Nebraska’s soybean breeders continue their impactful work to improve soybean quality and productivity. The scientists working in soybean breeding and genetics are exploring numerous areas including: stem borer resistance, improved oil content, water use efficacy, boosting carbon capture during seed development, and more.
