Serious About Soybeans
DonmarioMAS Blanco


DONMARIO MAS is a network of sites and events encompassing an experience for the U.S. soybean farmer. Its goal is to generate technical and agronomic information about soybeans to share with farmers to help generate better yields. The focus is to understand the best interaction between Genetics and the Environment.


The concept started more than 20 years ago in Argentina and has expanded into all the countries where DONMARIO is present.
