The Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board met on March 8, 2001 and reviewed proposals for research funding for the 2001 fiscal year. The Board was forced to again reduce its annual research budget due to the low production numbers and price for the calendar year 2000 crop. The Board sought to maintain as thorough a research program as possible given the budget considerations, and approved a total of $839,775 in project funding for the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture for the year. The specific projects funded and amounts approved for each follow:

Integration of Resistant Soybeans with a Biological Control Agent for Suppression of the Soybean Cyst Nematode $40,759
