Application deadline near for soybean research grants

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Soybean Board is currently accepting grant applications for projects designed to improve the efficiency, profitability, and sustainability of Pennsylvania soybean producers. The deadline for applications is January 27. The Pennsylvania Soybean Board will review grant requests and select grant recipients in mid-February.

Proposals for research focusing on soybean production, utilization, education/information and marketing will be considered. All proposals must demonstrate a benefit to soybean producers.

In addition to research projects that focus on crop production issues and those that position soy in alternative-use niche markets, the all-farmer Pennsylvania Soybean Board will also consider proposals that focus on issues affecting the sustainability of the number one domestic customer for soybean meal: animal agriculture.

Grant applications can be obtained on the Pennsylvania Soybean Board website at www.pasoybean.org. Additional information on guidelines and grant procedures are also available at the site.
