2024-2025 Targeted Request For Proposals

MSPB is trialing a framework through which it can more effectively invest checkoff dollars on behalf of Mississippi soybean growers. That framework will utilize Targeted Requests for Proposal (TRFP). The strategy of TRFPs is built upon identification of comprehensive General Focus Areas (GFAs). The GFA is a general agronomic subject matter with high interest of growers and industry. A single TRFP is tied to a single GFA. The GFA is further divided into Specific Research Targets (SRTs) which correspond to the ‘scope’ of the more comprehensive GFA. Proposals should be directed to address one or several of the SRTs. The intentions of the framework include: 1) shift a portion of research focus and budget spend from present issues and impact and toward near-term (5 year) and longer-term (10 year) efforts and impacts, 2) develop a greater proportion of funded research that is unique, new, and likely to accentuate MSPB funded research within the soybean industry, 3) encourage collaborative efforts across disciplines for a better understanding of key issues, and 4) close some of the gap between current research and focus areas of early-adopters in the state. TRFP proposals must be submitted by January 16, 2024 by emailing research@mssoy.org to be considered for the 2024-2025 proposal cycle. For questions and more information regarding the Targeted RFP process, please contact Brewer Blessitt at research@mssoy.org or (662)207-5723.
