Nutrien and Sound Ag Join the ISRC

Nutrien and Sound Ag logosThe ISRC welcomes Nutrien and Sound Agriculture as the center’s newest industry partners. The companies provide financial support to the center and have representatives serving on the ISRC’s industry advisory council, which provides guidance on research funding priorities for the center. Nutrien and Sound Ag join representatives from AGCO, Albaugh, AMVAC, BASF, Bayer, Beck’s, Cornelius Seed, Corteva Agriscience, FMC, GDM, Innvictis/Simplot, Merschman Seeds, Mosaic, Peterson Genetics, Syngenta and UPL.

“The ISRC is excited that Nutrien and Sound Agriculture are joining the center and thank them for their support. We recognize Nutrien as one of the world's largest providers of crop inputs, particularly potash and nitrogen fertilizer. And, Sound Agriculture’s innovative work with microbes and plant breeding is fascinating. Their perspectives and experiences will be extremely useful in discussions by the ISRC Industry Advisory Council about how center-funded research can help Iowa’s soybean farmers achieve higher yields,” said Greg Tylka, director of the Iowa Soybean Research Center and professor of plant pathology, entomology and microbiology at Iowa State. 

“We welcome Nutrien and Sound Agriculture as the center’s latest industry partners and look forward to gaining their valuable perspective identifying ways to enhance soybean production. Ultimately, we have a shared goal providing robust agronomic systems and environmentally sustainable solutions to benefit Iowa’s soybean farmers and consumers,” said Christie Wiebbecke, senior director of research for the Iowa Soybean Association and chair of the Iowa Soybean Research Center’s Industry Advisory Council.
