Innvictis Seed Solutions, distributed by Simplot Grower Solutions, has become the latest industry partner to join the Iowa Soybean Research Center at Iowa State University. In this role, the company will provide financial support to the center and have a representative serving on the ISRC’s industry advisory council, which provides guidance on research funding priorities for the center.

“Innvictis/Simplot is a wonderful addition to our center, and we greatly appreciate their support,” said Greg Tylka, director of the Iowa Soybean Research Center and professor of plant pathology and microbiology at Iowa State. “They will provide a unique perspective to our advisory council as a manufacturer and retailer,” he said.

“Innvictis/Simplot is an exciting addition to the center’s forward-thinking group of industry partners, which will help us advance the needs of Iowa’s soybean farmers through innovative research,” said Ed Anderson, senior director of research for the Iowa Soybean Association and chair of the Iowa Soybean Research Center’s industry advisory council.

The center is a formal collaboration of Iowa State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Iowa Soybean Association, and leading companies in the agricultural industry. Innvictis/Simplot is the center’s 11th industry partner, joining AMVAC, BASF, Bayer, Cornelius Seed, Corteva Agriscience, FMC, GDM, Merschman Seeds, Syngenta and UPL.

The center was founded to increase soybean production and profitability for Iowa farmers through coordinated research efforts involving Iowa State, the Iowa Soybean Association and the private sector.
