Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) - Professional + Producer
The Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program announces the Call for Proposals for Professional + Producer Research and Education Grants for 2023. With a Professional + Producer grant, an Agricultural Technical Advisor Professional and three (3) Producers work together to develop a proposal to conduct both research and outreach on a sustainable agriculture topic. Outreach activities may include on farm/ranch demonstrations, farmer-to-farmer educational activities, field days, and other approaches to assist producers’ adoption of sustainable agricultural practices. The goal of this program is to achieve results that can be communicated to producers and other agricultural professionals; sustain and improve the environmental quality and natural resource base on which agriculture depends; improve the profitability of farmers/ranchers and associated agricultural businesses; and enhance the quality of life for farmers/ranchers in local communities. The SARE grant program mission is to advance innovations that improve profitability, environmental stewardship, and quality of life in American agriculture by investing in groundbreaking research and education. To achieve that, Western SARE believes that our programs must include the involvement of agricultural producers from inception to finish, and therefore we require producer involvement in the planning, design, implementation, and educational outreach of any funded project.
The project team must be a minimum of four (4) people and must include: An Agricultural Technical Advisor (Principal Investigator) and at least three (3) Producers. One of the Producers must be identified as the Advisor Representative. The team may also include additional collaborators.
