California Fertilizer Research and Education Program Grants

January 31

The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Fertilizer Research and Education Program (FREP) is accepting concept proposals for the 2019 grant cycle. FREP’s competitive grant program funds research that advances the agronomic and environmental performance of fertilizing materials. This year’s priorities include the following: technical education, demonstrating and/or validating management practices that optimize nutrient and irrigation management, addressing barriers to adoption of management practices, filling knowledge gaps in nitrogen management for specific crops, performing research on the role of organic input materials in soil nutrient management, and investigating and understanding mitigation strategies for nitrogen loss.
Concept proposals are due by January 31, 2019.
