The Arkansas Agriculture Department (AAD) is now accepting applications for the 2018 Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, made available through funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). These grants help to enhance the specialty crop industry of Arkansas, which includes the growing and selling of fruits, vegetables, floriculture and nuts. Applications must be submitted to the AAD by April 13th.

“For more than ten years we have administered funding for projects that have helped bolster this sector of our agricultural industry by providing producer training, research on a variety of issues important to the industry, and improving access to Arkansas specialty crops ”, said Arkansas Agriculture Secretary Wes Ward. “The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program funds have made a difference for Arkansas agriculture and we look forward to receiving the 2018 proposals.”   MORE
