The Soybean Research & Information Network (SRIN) website has been revamped to focus on the farmer.
The website—formerly the Soybean Research & Information Initiative (SRII)— got a makeover this winter to expand content, improve navigation and update visuals. The site is a product of the North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP), of which the Nebraska Soybean Board is a member. The 13 member states invest checkoff funds for research to improve soybean quality, and the website originally included projects conducted only in these states.
But soybean research goes far beyond the Midwest. To expand collaboration and reduce duplication, the NCSRP group has partnered with the United Soybean Board (USB) and the SRIN is a reflection of this partnership, encompassing checkoff-supported research projects across the country.
The website is greatly expanded but remains rooted in communicating the benefits of soybean research and practical solutions to the farmer.
“The updated SRIN website enables farmers, crop advisers and researchers to see how their checkoff dollars contribute to improving soybean development, production and quality,” said Ed Anderson, NCSRP executive director. “The soybean research community keeps this overarching goal in mind as they conduct their studies.”
