Request for Research Proposals

Each year the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) seeks soybean research proposals for funding. The ISA Board will fund research projects that address their goals to increase soybean farmer competitiveness, especially through increased productivity and profitability while improving environmental stewardship.

ISA will fund both applied and basic research, as well as Extension & Outreach, that will provide short- and long-term practical benefits to Iowa’s soybean farmers.

NCSRP Survey for Profitable Soy Management

Knowing what works on your farm is priceless.

RCFI is part of a multi-state effort to collect management data on soybean fields through a NCSRP survey using production data from farmers' fields.

The goal is to utilize the information from the survey to develop a new online cropping system optimization decision tool that will help farmers make decisions that are more profitable.
