Wednesday, May 29, 2019. 3:00PM. Webinar: Conservation Innovation Grants - On Farm Trials. Kari Cohen, USDA NRCS. Sponsored by USDA NRCS Science and Technology. More information here.
Participants will join to learn about a new opportunity included in the 2018 Farm Bill that provides eligible entities an opportunity to apply to collaborate with NRCS to implement innovative on-farm conservation activities and then evaluate their impact.
On-Farm Trials supports more widespread adoption of innovative approaches, practices and systems on working lands. Projects feature collaboration between NRCS and partners to implement on-the-ground conservation activities and then evaluate their impact. Funding is available annually and goes directly to partners, which in turn provide technical assistance and incentive payments to producers to offset the risk of implementing innovative approaches on their lands.
On-Farm Trials are open to private entities whose primary business is related to agriculture, non-governmental organizations with experience working with agricultural producers, and non-Federal government agencies.
