Grants to North Dakota nonprofits, for-profits, government agencies, and IHEs to improve the market for specialty agricultural crops produced within the State. Specialty crops are defined as vegetables, fruits, dried fruits, nursery crops (including floriculture), tree nuts, and horticulture. Funding is intended to support areas such as research, food safety, educational outreach, the development of new seed varieties, and disease and pest control.
To be eligible for a grant, the project(s) must "solely enhance the competitiveness of U.S. or U.S. territory grown specialty crops in either domestic or foreign markets." Projects must also benefit more than one commercial product (e.g., ABC Company brand), organization, or individual.
Examples of enhancing the competitiveness of specialty crops include, but are not limited to: research, promotion, marketing, nutrition, trade enhancement, food safety, food security, plant health programs, education, increased consumption, increased innovation, improved efficiency and reduced costs of distribution systems and environmental concerns and conservation.
Eligible plants must be intensively cultivated and used by people for food, medicinal purposes, and/or aesthetic gratification to be considered specialty crops. Processed products shall constitute greater than 50% of the specialty crop by weight, exclusive of added water.
