The Atlantic Soybean Council works to identify commonalities in research projects in the Mid-Atlantic area while identifying possible duplications.

The collaborative nature of the Council provides for innovative projects to be developed and funded, and the results be disseminated by staff to a wider audience of soybean farmers and researchers with the potential to impact future research. The...

About Us

Smaller states with limited checkoff funding need to work together to fund research projects. Identifying those projects that can apply to multiple states will help to leverage those checkoff funds and enable a bigger impact. The Atlantic Soybean...
