The North Central Soybean Research Program (NCSRP) is proud to announce Indiana farmer Trevor Glick as the president of the farmer-led organization. Glick, a seventh-generation soybean, corn, winter wheat and cattle farmer from Columbus, Ind., previously served as vice president and replaces Ed Cagney of Scotts, Mich. Gene Stoel of Lake Wilson, Minn. was elected vice president of the group.
As the first second-generation NCSRP board member, Glick says he’s excited to lead the organization and fulfill its mission. His father, Myron, was also on the board. “I’m honored to serve soybean farmers. (My father) valued the board and the progress they were making and I feel the same way,” Glick says.
Coordinating research efforts among states and universities sets the organization apart, Glick says.“I’ll continue the great tradition of North Central leading research and tackling the big issues facing soybean farmers, like SCN, sudden death syndrome and white mold,” Glick says. Glick has served on the Indiana Soybean Alliance board since 2006 and was former chair of the alliance’s research and uses committee. He farms with a brother and co-owns L&M Glick Seed Co. Glick is married with three young children.
The NCSRP was established in 1992 by state soybean associations in Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The organization invests soybean checkoff funds in programs, such as weed and insect management, to improve yields and profitability.
