2021 NESARE Farmer Grant - Call for proposals released

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.

Farmer Grant projects should seek new knowledge other farmers can use and address questions that are directly linked to improved profits, better stewardship, and stronger rural communities.

A technical advisor–often an extension agent, crop consultant, other service professional or farmer with advanced expertise–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.

Grants are capped at $15,000 and projects can run up to two years.

The deadline to apply is November 17, 2020.
