Production and Research

Indiana Soybean Alliance believes in investing soybean checkoff dollars into basic and applied research programs. Much of the production driven research is conducted through ISA’s partnership with Purdue University College of Agriculture and North Central Soybean Research Program.

Indiana Soybean Alliance farmer directors and researchers work together to identify and prioritize needs or issues faced in producing high yielding, high-quality soybeans. Whether that is accomplished through biotechnology, genetics, or agronomics – soybean farmers want researchers to be able to discover, develop and utilize tools to find new ways to resist pests and disease,develop and cultivate healthy and efficient varieties, and create lines of soybeans with desirable composition traits. And do so in ways that provide economic and ecological benefits back to the farmer and the land.
