Welcome to the North Central Soybean Research Program
|The NCSRP coordinates regional research efforts on soybean pests and diseases, and facilitates information transfer to Midwest soybean growers.|
The North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP) was established in 1992 by state checkoff organizations in the North Central states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
We are a farmer-led organization that invests soybean checkoff funds in research programs to better understand and manage plant stressors that reduce soybean yield and farmer profitability.
The mission of the NCSRP is to maximize producer returns by coordinating research efforts across state boundaries, minimizing regional duplication of research expenditures, and assuring regional research projects are targeted at problems of the North Central soybean producer.
NCSRP-funded research for 2013
The NCSRP Board of Directors approved 11 research projects for funding in fiscal year 2013. Several of the projects are being jointly funded by the United Soybean Board and state checkoff boards.
