Soybean checkoff farmer-leaders have recently returned from Vietnam, where they met with leaders in soybean research, importing and processing. The meetings helped build better collaboration between international researchers and importers and U.S researchers and exporters.

Members of the United Soybean Board's (USB) Production Research Committee scouted soybean fields in northern Vietnam before meeting with the Vietnamese vice minister of agriculture. The team, also joined by Henry Nguyen, Ph.D., director of the National Center for Soybean Biotechnology at the University of Missouri, met with several researchers throughout the country to discuss soybean production and composition research that may be applicable to similar research in the United States.
