The Wisconsin Soybean Association (WSA) and the Wisonsin Soybean Marketing Board (WSMB) complement each other in supporting our growers. We offer practical, science-based knowledge about soybeans and help find and grow markets and new uses for soy.

The WSA is funded by membership dues only. No checkoff funds support the WSA or were used to create this page. The WSMB does receive checkoff funding.

Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board (WSMB)

Established in 1983 as part of a Wisconsin-mandated checkoff, the WSMB works every day to maximize the profitability of Wisconsin soybean producers. Grassroots and farmer-led, the WSMB dedicates itself to building demand, creating new uses and focusing on disease research for Wisconsin soybeans.

Our Board is committed to statewide education and outreach programs to inform consumers about the benefits of soy. And it’s our mission to maximize the profitability of Wisconsin’s soybean producers by investing Wisconsin’s soybean checkoff funds in targeted domestic and international research, promotion and communication initiatives.
