The ISA Research Center for Farming Innovation is here to provide programs, projects, tools and information to help farmers to be more profitable. All soybean farmers have access to our on-farm research results, analytics and decision tools, and programs that emphasize applied on-farm research and technical assistance for agronomic and conservation improvement and best management practices.
By engaging with our staff, you have the opportunity for support in conducting on-farm agronomics and conservation research. We can help you evaluate product, practices and infrastructure that will positively impact your profitability through increased productivity, optimized inputs, maximized soil health, soil fertility, soil conservation, nutrient management, water management and water quality.
In addition to benefiting from over 20 years of past on-farm research results, farmers can participate in current project opportunities and receive technical assistance for watershed planning and cropping systems improvement. We aim to help you understand how and where your soybean checkoff dollars are being utilized at universities across the Midwest to bring short- and long-term value. This value is seen in the form of new genetics, biotechnology, pest, disease and weed management, engineering solutions, precision agriculture, predictive modeling and computational agriculture.
