Michigan elevators, grain dealers and seed handlers are one of the most important parts of the Michigan soybean checkoff program. They collect the checkoff assessments from the farmers and send them to the MSC office. Without their cooperation, the program would not be the success it is today.
If a first purchaser is interested in submitting the soybean checkoff to our office electronically, please contact our office.
If you are having trouble working with the forms, update your Adobe Reader to the current version.
There is an Organic Exemption for organic soybean farmers. Please see Organic Exemption Qualifications for more information.
Under the federal soybean checkoff program implemented on September 1, 1991, first purchases of seed stock are subject to the SOYBEAN PROMOTION, RESEARCH, AND CONSUMER INFORMATION ACT AND ORDER, administered by the United States Department of Agriculture. Click here for more information.
