    sustainable ag solution to a current farm issue If you are interested in implementing sustainable agriculture techniques on your farm you may be eligible for one of our grants Read on The Southern Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education SSARE Program recognizes the value and importance of on the farm producer experience in developing solutions to agricultural production challenges In order to capture this producer experience the Southern SARE program offers Producer Grants a competitive grants program intended to help farmers and ranchers develop sustainable production and marketing practices The goal of the grant program is for farmers ranchers to conduct projects to solve challenges and problems they face and develop information on what works and doesn t work so that other farmers and ranchers facing those same problems can benefit from the results of the funded project Who can apply for a Producer Grant Any farmer rancher or farmer organization in the Southern region is eligible to apply for a Producer Grant They may only submit one proposal in a grant cycle How much will the grants fund Project maximums are 10 000 for an individual farmer or rancher and 15 000 for a farmer organization for up to two years of research SSARE funds about 8 Producer Grant proposals each year What can Producer Grant Funds be used for Producer Grant funds may be used for the following purposes Costs of sampling and sample analysis Materials and supplies needed for the project Outreach expenses such as holding a field day Travel needed for the project Hired labor for things that you can t do yourself Your labor for project activities above and beyond your normal farming duties Refreshments at field days e g coffee cold drinks fruit pie cookies etc Are there things that Producer Grant funds can t be used for Producer Grant funds may NOT be used for the following purposes Buying equipment Starting or expanding a farm or farming operation Permanent improvements to a farm or ranch e g planting an orchard buying a herd bee hives bees or buying animals Installing permanent fencing permanent greenhouses high tunnels water containment tanks irrigation pipe pumps building a pond or constructing a building Lunches or other full meals at field days or large gatherings Testing of commercial products What else should I know about Producer Grants Producer grants are for research education and outreach purposes only They are not for beginning farmers nor are they intended to pay a farmer to farm start a farm buy land or make capital investments or farm improvements They are designed to take some of the financial risk away from trying a sustainable ag solution to a current farm issue Producer Grants are competitive grants A farmer rancher competes against other farmer ranchers from across the South Projects must be developed coordinated and conducted by farmers and or ranchers or a producer organization Producer organizations should be comprised primarily of farmers ranchers and must have majority farmer representation on their governing

    concentrate on postharvest food system research These grants would examine what goes on past the farm in terms of markets distribution systems and policy We would particularly encourage social science research into areas such as local food systems and systems of well coordinated regional farm networks as well as needed changes in agricultural policy to support sustainable agriculture c Projects that encompass production and postharvest research While some research can be separated into production and postharvest levels we also seek to encourage attempts to provide integration of the different levels of the agricultural system as well as the different sciences that lend more value to the results Our preference will be for research projects that connect parts of the agricultural system These grants for up to 300 000 for three years would continue the traditional R E grants program that has been the backbone of the SARE program Emphasis would be placed on farmer participation particularly for the production projects on the relevance to sustainable agriculture and on the strength of a holistic approach Within the full R E grants we would continue to have relevant priority areas such as limited resource farmers organic farming systems environmentally sound practices agriculture ecosystems marketing economic development cooperatives policy project evaluation and quality of life and women in sustainable agriculture 2 Large Systems Grants This category of grants would be strictly for full systems research teams that have had successful research projects but need long term support to build on the infrastructure in place They would entail 100 000 per year for three years Additional three year grants are possible pending review by the S SARE Administrative Council as well as availability of funding The goal of these grants would be to provide long term funding to continue to utilize the expertise built up from past R E grants or some funding sources other than S SARE Research teams would work with the SARE Administrative Council to identify new research goals to be accomplished These grants would be similar to those in science programs like the National Institute of Heath NIH Unlike the matching grant program described below these grants could support positions or activities in place prior to the grant application These grants would be designed to establish long term capacity rather than gaining a near term result to a specific research question We believe that the lack of long term funding is often a barrier to the full development and understanding of systems of agricultural production More evidence of the ability of the project to leverage funding from other sources will be important in successfully competing for these grants Evidence would also be required that indicated the ability of the long term grant to leverage the findings of past R E PDP or other grants to extend their impact more widely and deeply Long term grants should also enable successful systems projects to continue to compete for other SARE grants Thus receiving a long term grant will not disqualify a systems
