Agriculture professionals in Cooperative Extension, Natural Resources Conservation Service, universities, NGOs, and government and non-government organizations who regularly work with farmers/ranchers are invited to apply for a grant that affords them the opportunity to conduct on-farm research in sustainable agriculture.
Applicants must work with at least one farmer/rancher on the project to conduct on-farm research in sustainable agriculture.
The On-Farm Research Grants are not intended for farmers/ranchers.
If you are a farmer/rancher and are interested in applying for a grant, refer to the Producer Grant Program. Calls for Proposals for Producer Grants are also currently open.
On-Farm Research Grants may be funded up to two years for a project maximum of $15,000.
