The National Soybean Research Laboratory (NSRL) is your
information source for the latest in soybean research -
from production to consumption. NSRL is housed in the National
Soybean Research Center (NSRC) located at the University
of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. NSRC was built and equipped
with federal and state funds and has programs supported
by industry, state, and federal dollars, and gifts and grants.
Housed within NSRC is a diverse association of research
programs including entomology, plant pathology, breeding
and genetics, food and nutritional sciences, and international
marketing. Many University researchers in other areas, such
as animal science and agricultural economics, are directly
linked to research projects underway at the NSRL. Since
1993, NSRL's role has dynamically responded to the evolving
technological and marketing conditions of the soybean industry.
We take our mission, "... to assist in expanding the
scope, size, and profitability of the U.S soybean industry.."
very seriously. Since the formation of NSRL in 1993, NSRL's
role, has evolved dynamically as the needs of the industry
responded to changing environmental, technological and market
conditions. Our Research Themes section describes activities
that we have undertaken or are initiating as we react to
As part of accomplishing the goals embedded within our mission, we know
that it is important to be accessible, both by providing
information in traditional forms and by responding to specific
inquiries. In addition to providing access to copies of
reports and presentations that have been completed, we also
welcome comments, questions and suggestions. Please use
