MANKATO — The Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council encourages soybean growers to participate in a survey to help farmer-leaders and researchers better address the diverse production challenges facing growers across Minnesota.
The Grower-Input Survey will take about 10 minutes and asks growers a series of questions gauging their top production concerns and priorities. The deadline to complete the survey is Feb. 5, and all answers are kept confidential. Every farmer who completes the entire survey will be eligible to win a $500 gift card. For every completed survey, the council will donate $10 in fresh meat to Second Harvest Heartland, a Minnesota food bank.
Each year, the Council invests soybean checkoff resources into research projects. In 2020, the Council sponsored 14 agronomic research projects delving into pest and weed management, soil health and breeding and genetics.
