Board soliciting research ideas from state’s farmers

CANTON — The Mississippi Soybean Promotion Board (MSPB) is encouraging soybean farmers from around the state to share the problems and issues they face in the field, either noticed for the first time this season or those faced year to year.
MSPB plans to use the input to aid the selection of research projects funded in the upcoming year.
Farmers can submit ideas through the MSPB website, mssoy.org.
MSPB Research & Technology Transfer coordinator Larry Heatherly, Ph.D., said, “More than 38 research projects were funded by MSPB in 2012, and each one was selected because the farmer-directors believed that the research would benefit soybean farmers. We aim to fund additional high-quality projects in 2013.”
