In the Press

Our work doesn't go unnoticed. The Soybean Innovation Lab continues to be featured in numerous publications both nationally and internationally. Through a wide variety of mediums, we distribute the local, scientific, data-driven, and evidence-based knowledge and technology to those tasked with soybean production in tropical environments. Check out our stories to learn about the researchers, people and organizations who develop the needed technology, knowledge and innovations for successful soybean production in Africa and the world.
