The Kansas Soybean Commission invests soybean-checkoff funds to support research to fight all yield-robbing diseases and pests. Research to help farmers improve production practices and improve their returns is a high priority for the soybean checkoff.
Review the Commission’s request for proposals (RFP) on the Forms page.
