TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas Soybean Commission (KSC) has decided to conduct its regular meeting Friday, March 27, virtually. It will begin at 8 a.m.
During that meeting, the commissioners will discuss nominees for the United Soybean Board, and they will submit a preferred candidate’s and an alternate’s names to the U.S. Department of Agriculture in May.
