Missouri Soybean Center Research Club

Soybean Research Club

The Soybean Research Club is an opportunity for researchers at all levels to present their work on any topic related to soybean to members of the Missouri Soybean Center and community at large. Presentations (30 to 40 minutes) are relatively informal, targeted to a broad audience, and a platform for discussion.

If there is continued interest, we will also schedule presentations for the 2021-2022 Soybean Research Club. If you are interested in presenting at a future club meeting, please email Kristin Bilyeu, steering committee chair, at or

All club meetings will be held 11 a.m. to noon on Fridays, and will be virtual meetings using Zoom. The Zoom meeting information will be posted below.
