The North Dakota Soybean Council is pleased to announce the recent addition of Kendall (Ken) Nichols as Director of Research Programs. Ken comes to the organization with more than 30 years of experience in the agricultural industry.

"We are excited to welcome Ken to our Council team," says Diana Beitelspacher, North Dakota Soybean Council CEO. "Research has always been a key focus area for the Council and Ken will play an instrumental role in working to find solutions to our producers' greatest production challenges," she adds. "We look forward to his leadership in this area."

Most recently, Nichols served as NDSU's Traill County Extension Director and Agent for the past five years. Nichols earned his Master of Science degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Education from North Dakota State University. He has more than 25 years of experience with the Extension Service in Minnesota and North Dakota and is a certified crop advisor. He has also served as an agronomist for Cenex Farm Service in Elliott, ND and as the manager of Midland Fertilizer in Enderlin, ND. Ken is also the recipient of numerous 4H awards and an achievement award from the National Association of County Agricultural Agents. Ken and his wife, Monica, have three grown children, and one grandchild.

"I really look forward to expanding the North Dakota Soybean Council's research program to bring new and exciting opportunities to North Dakota farmers," says Ken.

North Dakota soybean farmers across the state are represented on the North Dakota Soybean Council Board, which oversees a grass roots promotion, research and marketing program funded by soybean checkoff dollars. The Council's mission is to effectively invest and leverage North Dakota soy checkoff resources to maximize the benefits of North Dakota soy. The Council is organized by North Dakota State law.
