Kansas Soybean Commission
The Kansas Soybean Commission works to improve the profit potential for all soybean farmers in Kansas and across the United States. It is a board of nine volunteer farmers, elected by their peers, who are responsible for managing Kansas’ share of the funds collected under the national soybean-checkoff program. The checkoff helps ensure a strong and productive future for soybean farmers. Through it, each farmer contributes 0.5 percent (for example, $5 of $1,000) of the selling price of soybeans, which grain elevators and processors collect at the first point of sale.
