The Soybean Research Verification Program started in 1983 and the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board helps fund the program through a soybean check-off program.

2018 was the 36th year for the program. Through that 36 years, 642 soybean fields have been enrolled in the program. The five year (2014-2018) average yield for the Soybean Research Verification Program fields is 60.8 bushels per acre. The state average for that same 5 year period is 49.8 bushels per acre.

Anyone interested in enrolling in the program should contact their local County Extension Agent. Click here for county offices information. Below is a map indicating the soybean verification program is active in Monroe, Prairie, Lee, Lonoke, Jefferson, Lincoln, Drew, Ashley, Phillips, Arkansas, Desha, and Chicot counties.
