California Fertilizer Research and Education Program Grants

January 29

The California Department of Food and Agriculture Fertilizer Research and Education Program (FREP) is accepting proposals for the 2021 grant cycle. FREP’s competitive grant program funds research that advances fertilization practices and minimizes environmental impacts of fertilizing materials. This year’s priorities include the following: demonstrating and/or validating management practices that optimize fertilizer and irrigation water use, addressing challenges and barriers to adoption of management practices, technical education, filling knowledge gaps in nitrogen management for specific crops, research on the role of organic input materials in soil nutrient management, understanding nitrogen movement, and investigating mitigation strategies to reduce nitrogen loss.
Concept proposals are due by January 29, 2021.
