In 2017, the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council partnered with Aimpoint Research to commission a research study with South Dakota consumers to determine sentiment toward farmers, agriculture and food issues as part of its Hungry for Truth initiative. The study included 18 focus group participants and a telephone survey of 950 people. The results were an update to similar research conducted in 2014 and provided valuable insights to guide strategy for consumer messaging.
South Dakota soybean growers are encouraged to vote in the District 5 board of directors election for the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council (SDSRPC). The election is May 14-June 15, 2018.
