Western SARE Competitive Grants Farmer/Rancher Research & Education 2015 Call for Proposals


The Administrative Council of the Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program announces the Call for Proposals for Farmer/Rancher Research & Education Grants for 2014. With a Farmer/Rancher Research & Education Grant, a producer, working with a technical advisor, develops a proposal to conduct both research and education on a sustainable agricultural topic and incorporate such items as: on-farm/ranch demonstrations; farmer-to-farmer educational outreach and other approaches to assist in producer adoption in an area of sustainable agriculture. The goal is to achieve results that can be communicated to producers and professionals and can improve income, the environment, communities and quality of life for all citizens.

Farmer/Rancher Involvement: Congress mandates that the SARE grant program depart from “business as usual.” To that end, the Administrative Council requires that agricultural producers (farmers/ranchers) be involved from start to finish in the planning, design, implementation and educational outreach of any SARE-funded Research and Education project.
