Welcome to Minnesota Soybean
Welcome to Minnesota Soybean! We're very proud to tell you that Minnesota's soybean farmers not only feed the world, they also grow a crop that is used to make innovative "green" products that help protect the environment and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Minnesota's soybean farmers are also knowledgeable, respectful stewards of the land they live and raise their families on. They are business men and women who continually strive to adopt new technologies and practices that will protect and preserve Minnesota's treasured natural resources, while producing a safe and abundant food supply. Collectively known as Minnesota Soybean, the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association (MSGA) and the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR&PC) are two very distinct and different organizations that work together toward a common goal - to increase the profitability of Minnesota's soybean farmers.
