There’s still time to apply for a 2014 research grant from
Organic Farming Research Foundation!

 
 
The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) invites proposals from all applicants, and particularly encourages farmers, ranchers, researchers, and Extension personnel to consider applying for funding.
 
Funding is offered for research on organic farming and food systems and the dissemination of these research results to organic farmers and the greater agricultural and research communities.  Farmers and ranchers often find that working with a professional researcher helps to design and carry out a research project, and OFRF encourages applications from such partnerships.

Through our grants program, OFRF has supported innovative approaches in subjects ranging from disease, weed, and insect management, to bees and pollinators, nutrient management, and cover crops. Past grants have been awarded to projects such as Developing “Organic Ready” Maize Populations; Farmer-based Plant Breeding for Organic Quinoa, Buckwheat, and Spelt; and Grafting Vegetables for Soil-Borne Disease Resistance.  For more information about what OFRF funds and how those studies can benefit your organic farm, please click here.

 
The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) grants program is open to all applicants residing in Canada, Mexico and the United States.
 
Note: Our annual grant cycle has changed. We are now only accepting proposals in the spring for one cycle of awards per year. The next application deadline will be in 2015 and a RFP will be released for that cycle later this fall.
 

The deadline to submit a proposal is Thursday, May 15, 2014
