USDA NIFA Announces More Than $8 Million to Address Shifting Environmental Conditions and Impact on Agriculture

NIFA announced nine grants totaling more than $8 million to study and develop new approaches for the agriculture sector to adapt to and mitigate the effects of changing environmental conditions. The funding is made possible through NIFA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative program, authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill. The Agriculture and Natural Resources Science for Climate Variability and Change Challenge Area aims to provide risk management information and tools to enable land managers to stay viable and productive, and reduce the use of energy, nitrogen, water, and greenhouse gas emissions.

NIFA invests in and advances agricultural research, education, and extension and promotes transformative discoveries that solve societal challenges.
