Have burning questions about some aspect of your farm or marketing strategy? Why not do some on-farm research?! Farmer Grants are for commercial producers who have an innovative idea they want to test using a field trial, on-farm demonstration, marketing initiative, or other technique. A technical advisor--often an extension agent, crop consultant, or other service professional--must also be involved. Projects should seek results other farmers can use, and all projects must have the potential to add to our knowledge about effective sustainable practices.
The deadline for proposals is December 2nd, with awards announced in March.
