The Soybean Center formally began operations in the fall of 2014. Marshall Martin, senior associate director of agricultural research, assistant dean of agriculture, and a professor of agricultural economics, was appointed as the center's founding director for two years.
Dr. Martin has deep connections with the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana soybean farmers, and a comprehensive understanding of Purdue's work on soybean. He brings exceptional administrative skills to the role and will be key to helping launch the center successfully.
Martin's immediate focus will be to consult with faculty and staff members and representatives of the soybean industry in developing a strategic plan for research and Extension that engages Purdue faculty and staff in key issues of the soybean "value chain."
