To support soybean growers’ profitability while contributing to nutrient loss reduction goals, trade-offs among yield and environmental outcomes specific to soybean production and sensitive to cropping system context must be quantified. In Illinois and the greater North Central region, soybeans are uniquely situated to contribute to nutrient loss reduction and capitalize on proposed carbon crediting programs. To this end, ISA-funded research results will be reviewed on the 4Rs of phosphorus (P) management, which stands to deliver nitrogen (N) loss reduction benefits, as well as a newly initiated project to provide benchmarks on interrelated soil, water and climate quality outcomes of soybean production.

I agree with this article because there needs to be more research into soybean production and the elements they require to grow and produce to their full ability. Soybean production research into the elements and how they affect the soil and water intake of the plants can be very helpful to production in the future
