USDA NIFA is accepting applications for the Methyl Bromide Transition Program, which focuses on integrated commercial-scale research on methyl bromide alternatives and associated extension activity that will foster the adoption of these solutions. Projects should cover a broad range of new methodologies, technologies, systems, and strategies for controlling economically important pests for which methyl bromide has been the only effective pest control option. Approximately $1.9 million in matching funds is available for Integrated Projects and Extension-Only Projects. Applications may only be submitted by eligible colleges and universities.
Applications are due by February 12, 2021.
