Conservation Innovation Grants – On Farm Trials

Date / Time: May 29, 2019 3:00 pm

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 Conservation Innovation Trials 
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.

Who Is Eligible 
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.
