  • Leveraging efforts to market and promote specialty crops;
  • Assisting producers with research and development relevant to specialty crops;
  • Expanding availability and access to specialty crops;
  • Addressing local, regional, and national challenges confronting specialty crop producers; and
  • For such other purposes determined to be appropriate by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, in consultation with specialty crop stakeholders and relevant state departments of agriculture.
