Brief Project Summary:
The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council (MSMC) has developed a three-year road map to develop seed supply channels and end-user demand to pull SOYLEIC™ soybean oil and meal through the value chain, thereby guaranteeing a viable market for American soybean farmers. To support this effort, the objectives of this project are threefold which will: (1) Establish and maintain a centralized SOYLEICTM variety database and provide a point of contact that will be utilized by seed companies, farmers, and end-users to identify seed products that will work on their farms and for their seed customers; (2) Work with public and private breeding programs to establish uniform standards for fatty acid composition, protein, and oil. In addition, minimum standards should be set for yield and agronomic traits to ensure varieties will perform in the targeted region; (3) Strengthen and grow the network of regional and major seed suppliers to distribute SOYLEICTM products to meet farmer and end-user demand

Benefit To Soybean Farmers

The primary objective of this project was to support the supply chain segment for a nationwide Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council marketing initiative that was approved by the USB for FY2021, 2022, and 2023. We are excited the project was approved again for FY24 and look forward to expanding and improving upon this program that was initiated in 2021. SOYLEIC variety development, supported by soybean farmers through USB and multiple state checkoff programs, is still ongoing at several land grant institutions and private organizations. This support of the land grant SOYLEIC breeding programs is critical in providing seed and market opportunities who do not have access to the Plenish portfolio of products and downstream customers. This project is also a key component to the broader effort to continue the expansion of high oleic soybean in the US as a viable resource for production agriculture as well as meeting the needs of domestic and international food producers and

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
