Through the soy checkoff, Pennsylvania soybean farmers invest in important research projects. Providing farmers with cutting-edge research they can use to better manage their crops is one of the most important ways the Pennsylvania Soybean Board (PSB) serves the state’s farmers.
The farmer-driven board reviews research proposals from university and industry research scientists and extension specialists from throughout the state. All funded projects intend to further the development of the soybean industry and must show a benefit to soybean farmers.
