Permalink Southern SARE Announces Producer Grants Funded for 2018

The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) program has announced funding for seven Producer Grant projects to further sustainable agriculture production and marketing practices throughout the Southern region. Among the Producer Grants funded for FY2018 are projects on growing upland rice for the local food market, subsoiling, using copper for healthier goats, weed control in brambles, utilizing mushroom mulches, and sweet sorghum and poultry alley cropping in agroforestry. Producer Grants are strictly for farmers and ranchers to conduct research projects on their farm to not only solve production and marketing challenges, but to also share their results with fellow farmers in an education and outreach capacity. The list of recipients is available online.
