The Tropical Soybean Information Portal (TSIP)

28 May 2015. Feed the Future's Soybean Innovation Lab announced the availability of a new Tropical Soybean Information Portal (TSIP).
The Tropical Soybean Information Portal (TSIP) is a one-stop data and information shop for the global community of researchers, extentionists, and private sector managers working in the soybean value chain.

The site is still small, but it is hoped it will grow to be an invaluable resource for soybean practitioners everywhere. The site is highly interactive so all materials are downloadable, and contributions are welcome. There is a Wiki page for tropical soybean terms and concepts, a video platform for webinars, and a curated database of research articles and reports. 

 TSIP contains a large online varietal trial information in sub-Saharan Africa. It is funded by USAID and Feed the Future.
