Top Research Funding Areas
  • Breeding for new and improved non-GMO and glyphosate-resistant cultivars
  • Increasing soybean resistance to diseases
  • Reducing Iron-deficiency chlorosis in soybeans
Top Areas of Research Critical to the Future of North Dakota's Soybean Production
  • Exploring new uses for soybeans for new markets
  • Control of SCN, white mold, sudden death syndrome and aphids
  • Sustainable soybean production practices including cover crops
  • Management of invasive and noxious herbicide-resistant weeds
Recent Innovative Research Projects
  • New uses for soybeans including building materials, rubber and asphalt
  • Application of beet lime to raise the pH in acidic soils

One of Our Biggest Success Stories as a Result of Research

North Dakota is home to the SCN Coalition, the national organization working together to combat the soybean cyst nematode. Advancements on how to mitigate SCN have been made through this organization including state-specific recommendations. Plant breeders across the country are currently working on new cultivars with SCN resistance.
