NC State Extension Publications

Introduction

The purpose of this publication is to provide information on soybean production in North Carolina. This information is intended to help producers make better decisions and increase yields and profits.

Much of the research and extension contained in this publication was funded by the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association (NCSPA). The NCSPA is the Qualified State Checkoff Board to administer soybean checkoff-funded programs for soybean producers in North Carolina. The NCSPA serves the interest of North Carolina soybean growers through research, promotion, and advocacy. Support for research is the largest investment of the Association, and monies from the grower assessment support and fund research at North Carolina State University that ultimately helps fulfill our mission of maximizing the profitability of North Carolina soybean farmers in an economically and environmentally sound manner.

The NCSPA is governed by a board of 30 farmer directors, a team of four officers, North Carolina’s American Soybean Association director, and two United Soybean Board directors. For more information, contact the North Carolina Soybean Producers Association, 211 E Six Forks Road, Suite 102, Raleigh, NC 27609, or call 919-839-5700.

For more research-based information about soybean production, visit the NC State Extension soybean portal and the NCSPA Grower Information Portal.
