Western SARE Research to Grassroots Grant

Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education

Closed November 9, 2022


These grants are built on the SARE concept that results of applied research are used to train agricultural professionals and producers in the latest principles of sustainable agriculture. Successful R2GR projects will take the research results from previously funded SARE projects and bring those results into the field through education to ag professionals and producers. 


Each RGR proposal must include a team made up of producers, ag professionals, and possibly researchers. Representatives from land grant Universities, NGOs, agency employees, or producers may lead the project.
