A research project receiving funds from the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council could have more farmers hitting the green, or more likely the rough. MSMC is again partnering with the Kansas Polymer Research Center at Pittsburg State University to make golf balls from soybeans. Kyle Durham is chairman of the MSMC.
Durham says if successful, these golf balls will bring additional value to soybean farmers.
The Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council is funding 31 projects this year totaling $2.5 million, including three at the Kansas Polymer Research Center.
