The Center has consulted 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." That includes food for a fast-growing world population and feed for animals as well as other uses such as biofuels and industrial uses.

The value chain links research in such areas as animal and human nutrition sciences; food science; aquaculture; plant pathology; economics; engineering; genetics and breeding; agronomic production practices; and entomology.

About Us

More than 50 faculty and staff members at Purdue whose work in some way involves soybeans, are pooling their resources to help tackle some of the complex challenges affecting the efficiency and profitability of the soybean industry as well as the food nutrition needs of the public.
