Agricultural Prosperity for Small and Medium-Sized Farms

The Agricultural Prosperity for Small and Medium-Sized Farms program investigates how economic and environmental interactions affect the competitiveness, efficiency, and long-term viability of small and medium-sized farms and ranches.  Successful proposals include social, biological, and other disciplinary approaches, and combine at least two of the three components of the agricultural knowledge system (research, education, and extension) to transfer new technology and knowledge into practical applications for adoption.

Examples of projects previously funded through this program:
