North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE)
10/10/19 4:00 PM CDT
Grants starting at $10,000 to USA teams of scientists, educators institutions, farmers, ranchers, and organizations in multiple North Central states for agricultural research and education projects that lead to sustainable and profitable food and fiber systems. Eligible states include Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Research and Education projects include a strong outreach component and significant farmer/rancher or other end user involvement from inception of the idea through implementation of the project. Coordinators are encouraged to explore social, environmental AND economic aspects of whole systems. Marketing sustainable agriculture products has been a thrust of NCR-SARE, which also funds projects in many other areas.
Many projects are interdisciplinary and/or multi-institutional, involving a broad range of agricultural interests. Project coordinators in the past have explored sustainable agriculture under the following topics: biocontrol, crop production, education/extension, networking, livestock production, marketing, quality of life, soil quality, value-added marketing, waste management, water quality, and weed control.
Successful projects should contribute to the following NCR-SARE broad-based outcomes:
Preproposals should clearly explain the relevancy of the project to sustainable agriculture in the North Central Region, including identifying expected outcomes for the project and how they will assist NCR-SARE in working toward the broad-based outcomes listed above.
