The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) Plant Industry Division is accepting proposals for projects to enhance the competitiveness of Nevada’s specialty crops. Specialty crops are defined as “fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, legumes, dried fruits, horticulture, and nursery crops (including floriculture).”
Project proposals that promote and enhance specialty crops through research, marketing, education and production must have multiple beneficiaries and may not be used to benefit only one individual or organization. Individual agricultural producers, non-profit and tribal organizations, minority groups, disadvantaged farmers, agricultural associations, industry groups, community-based organizations and academic institutions are encouraged to apply.
Deadline have been extended to:
Letters of intent: March 15, 2021
Application proposals: April 15, 2021
The request for proposals, previously funded projects and more information can be found on the NDA website.
