|Welcome to the North Central Soybean Research Program
The North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP) was established in 1992 by state checkoff organizations in the North Central states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
We are a farmer-led organization that invests soybean checkoff funds in university research and Extension programs to better understand and manage plant stressors that reduce soybean yield and farmer profitability.
The mission of the NCSRP is to maximize producer returns by coordinating regional research efforts, minimizing duplication of research, and assuring that regional research projects are targeted at problems of the North Central soybean producer.
