June 30, 2022 – The Kansas Soybean Commission is scheduled to meet August 2 for its Annual Meeting in Manhattan, Kansas. The agenda includes hearing organizational reports, discussing funding projects and electing a new team of officers.
The Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for Commissioners to welcome the new fiscal year, which begins July 1, and review investments for the year. A total of 52 project funding proposals were approved in December 2021 to begin in the 2023 fiscal year.
The agenda also includes reviewing the request for proposal process and discussing methods to optimize the process, hearing state program reports from partner organizations, and other industry updates.
The North Central Soybean Research Program is scheduled to meet in Manhattan August 2-4 following the KSC meeting. Attendees will tour the Kansas State University Agronomy Farm and nearby research plots. NCSRP is a collaboration of 13 soybean-producing states that bridges research efforts and funding to leverage soybean checkoff dollars for a greater return on investment.
“We are excited to host soybean researchers from the region to showcase the expertise we have right here in our backyard at Kansas State University,” Kaleb Little, KSC Administrator, says. “This collaboration also ensures we are spending checkoff resources wisely and not duplicating work that is already being done in another state.”
Individuals who wish to obtain the complete agenda or propose a new item for discussion may contact KSC Administrator Kaleb Little at email@example.com or call the office at 877-KS-SOYBEAN (877-577-6923).
