Permalink Research Grant Proposals on Key Issues Affecting Agriculture in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for more than $860,000 in grant funding available to researchers interested in finding solutions to some of the most pressing and persistent problems confronting the commonwealth's farms and farmers. Among the topics prioritized for funding this year are research into the spotted lanternfly; new methods and technologies for cost-effectively reducing nutrient loads to Pennsylvania’s waterways; and the efficacy of various avian vaccinations. Other areas of focus include research into production agriculture's ability to access capital, farm safety, and the public return on investment of farmland preservation. The department will also offer micro-grants to research and support the development of micro-credentials or badges that teach specific workforce development skills; solutions to practical problems of hydroponic and aquaponic operations; and remedies to challenges common in urban agricultural operations.
Proposals are due by January 26, 2018.
