Final Project Results

The Supply Research Partnerships investment proposed four key deliverables: 1 – meetings for USB funded projects and activities. 2 – Conference and membership sponsorships. 3- Support for the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST). 4 – Take action advisory council support. Each of these deliverables was met over the timeframe of the investment.

Benefit To Soybean Farmers

Funding / sponsoring research meetings allows researchers to coordinate plans. Sponsorship of conferences drives innovation and progress in soybean research. Partial support and engagement with organizations such as CAST ensures that soy growers and their interests are represented in larger conversations about agriculture.

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.
