In keeping with its mission, the Maryland Soybean Board sponsors soybean-related research. Much of this information is returned to farmers via the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension Service (http://extension.umd.edu/topics/agriculture).
Guidelines & Application
The Pre-Proposal Form is a simple document which requires only the concept and a brief narrative. The purpose of the pre-proposal is to make sure that the proposed research fits within the board’s priorities.
The board will review the pre-proposals and may invite researchers to complete the full Research Application Form.
