The Louisiana Soybean and Grain Research and Promotion Board stewards checkoff funds to provide farmers with scientific, applicable, data-driven research. Using resources at both the state and regional level creates research solutions specific to Louisiana’s yield- and profit-robbing problems. Current efforts emphasize efficient use of inputs for sustainably profitable returns for soybean producers.
