On-Farm Research Grants Emphasize Ag professional & Farmer/Rancher Collaboration

Ag professionals in Cooperative Extension, Natural
Resources Conservation Services, universities, NGOs, and government and
non-government organizations who regularly work with farmers/ranchers have
the opportunity to apply for a grant that affords them the opportunity to
conduct on farm research in sustainable agriculture.

The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SSARE) program
has released its Call for Proposals for the 2013 On-Farm Research Grants.
Proposal submission deadline is Nov. 15, 2012 . Announcement of grants will
take place in late February 2013.

On-Farm Research Grants are intended for Cooperative Extension, Natural
Resources Conservation Services, university personnel, government, and
non-governmental organizations that regularly work with farmers/ranchers and
are interested in conducting on-farm research or marketing projects related
to 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. For detailed information on how to apply for an On-Farm Research
Grant download the current Call for Proposals at
http://www.southernsare.org. The Call for Proposals includes application
information, program priorities, use of funds, proposal submission
instructions, and contact information. Be sure to carefully follow the
information in the Call for Proposals when submitting your grant. Failure to
follow the submission guidelines may result in your proposal being rejected.

the University of Georgia, Fort Valley State University, and the Kerr Center
for Sustainable Agriculture to offer competitive grants to advance
sustainable agriculture in America's Southern region.
