Kansas Soybean Commission to Meet
02/07/2019
 
The Kansas Soybean Commission (KSC) will conduct a regular meeting Friday, March 15, at the Kansas Soybean Building in Topeka. It will begin at 8 a.m.

During that meeting, the commissioners will discuss potential nominees for the United Soybean Board, and they will submit a preferred candidate's and an alternate's names to the U.S. Department of Agriculture in May. The Soybean Promotion, Research and Consumer Information Act authorized the national board, and the secretary of agriculture appoints members from the soybean farmers that qualified state soybean boards nominate. The eventual appointee will serve a three-year term beginning in December.

Because no candidates submitted petitions, the commissioners also will appoint a commissioner for District 8 in the east-central part of the state.

For more details about either position, including the commission's plan to reach diverse candidates, eligible farmers should call 877-KS-SOYBEAN (877-577-6923) or visit http://KansasSoybeans.org/forms on the web. KSC must receive applications by Feb. 28.

The commission also will discuss current and future research projects, market-development activities, educational programs, and administrative items. The commissioners may go into executive session to discuss confidential contractual matters. To obtain a complete agenda or to suggest additional topics for deliberation, contact KSC Administrator Kenlon Johannes at [email protected] or call the Kansas Soybean office.
