Minnesota Soybean Research
& Promotion Council

Committed to increasing farmer profitability through the wise investment of checkoff dollars.

Each time a farmer sells soybeans, one-half of one-percent of the market price is "checked off." One-half stays in the state for state-specific projects and one-half is sent to the United Soybean Board (www.unitedsoybean.org) to be used for national and international programs.

The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (MSR & PC) is the elected board of soybean producers from across the state who direct the investments of the state’s checkoff dollars into programs designed to increase the profitability of Minnesota’s soybean farmers. Priority areas include Research & Technology Transfer, International Marketing, Domestic Marketing, Education and Communications.

Board members are elected to three year terms during the annual commodity council elections conducted by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
